Employees will have until November 1st to apply for Emergency Financial Assistance and Philanthropic funding for Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Hilary, and the Smith River Complex Fire.
Emergency Financial Assistance — Sutter employees who are mandatorily evacuated due to flood, wildfire or storm related natural disasters are eligible to apply for Emergency Financial Assistance to help cover expenses for emergency housing, food, clothing and other essentials.
Disaster Recovery Pay — This program provides employees with up to 40 hours of pay (based on FTE status) when their Sutter worksite facility is closed due to mandatory evacuation (does not apply to remote WFH arrangements).
Sutter Health Philanthropic Disaster Relief Fund — Financial support available in certain circumstances to supplement an approved Emergency Financial Assistance request to help employees recover from the impact of natural disasters.
Emergency Lodging — Emergency lodging is available for front-line employees who are displaced from their home due to a mandatory evacuation resulting from a natural disaster to allow them to report to work and provide patient care at a Sutter facility. The maximum lodging allowance is one room for up to four nights (five days), not to exceed $200/day. These expenses must be approved in advance by the employee’s department manager and will be charged to the department through the expense reimbursement process.
