An Employee’s View: Chris, Supply Management

I’ve worked at RML Specialty Hospital for 20 years, and I love what I do. I’ve seen firsthand the service and care our staff provides to our patients. My fondest memory is the caroling we do for patients and family members every year at the holidays. It’s extremely gratifying and a great morale-builder, and it’s a symbol of RML’s family atmosphere. This is a very special place to work.


RML offers a competitive compensation and excellent benefits package. Employees can choose from a large selection of benefits that help protect their health, wealth and well-being. Benefits include:

RML offers medical plans that cover a wide variety of medical services and prescription drugs. Employees select a plan based upon their personal and family needs.

Employees may choose a dental plan for preventive/diagnostic care, basic and major treatment and orthodontia.

Employees may select the optional vision plan, Vision Service Plan (VSP), that provides value and savings on eye exams and eyewear, plus discounts for laser vision correction.

RML provides employees with basic life insurance, basic accidental death and dismemberment insurance, and the opportunity to buy optional life insurance for the employee, spouse and family.

RML offers both short- and long-term disability insurance to provide compensation in cases where employees are injured or sick and unable to work for extended periods of time as outlined in the plan.

Through RML’s flexible spending account (FSA) program, employees can use tax-free dollars to pay for 1) most medical, dental and vision care expenses such as co-payments, deductibles and services that are not covered in their plans, and 2) dependent care expenses such as childcare and elder care.

RML’s 401(k) plan enables employees to save 1 percent to 35 percent of their pay for retirement before taxes.  For every $1 employees contribute (up to 6 percent of their salaries), RML contributes $1 to their accounts. Employees are 100 percent vested in the money both they and RML contribute.

RML offers employees flexibility taking time off. Full-time employees receive 26 days each year. Based on length of service and other factors, the number of PTO days increases. In addition to PTO, RML offers extended illness time, bereavement leave, jury duty, and family medical leave.

For employees who may need help managing stress, RML offers an EAP at no cost. Counselors are available 24 hours a day to both employees and their family members.

RML provides a place to exercise at work. A fitness room and showers are available to employees at no cost.

RML employees can elect to become a member of Healthcare Associates Credit Union, which offers many services similar to local banks.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

RML is fundamentally led by our code of ethical behavior. At the heart of that code is the commitment to treat the people we serve and our fellow employees fairly, and with dignity, courtesy, and respect. All persons are entitled to work in or to be cared for in an environment free of discrimination, and verbal, physical, and sexual harassment.

Our expectation is that if you are a patient, visitor, employee, business partner, or even simply communicate with us - you will be treated with dignity and respect.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) encompasses a culture of acknowledging, embracing, supporting, and accepting those of all racial, sexual, gender, religious socioeconomic and unique backgrounds.

The RML Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee strives to identify, educate, and eliminate potential discriminatory practices and barriers to impartiality at our institution. We seek to foster a welcoming and respectful environment for our patients, families, staff, partners, and the surrounding communities we serve.
