HR on the Road

Though the Hospital’s night-shift employees receive the same benefits as those holding similar jobs during the day, access to the Human Resources office has always been limited to daytime hours—until recently, that is. Thanks to a joint effort between Wellnet, a network of wellness services, and JHH’s Human Resources, night shifters now have that access. Once a month, from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., an HR director joins Wellnet’s Patti Moninghoff—who’d already been taking her cart around at night for years. Together they hand out forms and answer questions about benefit matters, like direct deposit, tuition reimbursement and taxes. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, says Mary Carole Kirkpatrick, JHHS director of health and welfare. More on-the-road HR services are being planned for sites beyond East Baltimore, she says, “day and night.”

Blood Driven

New incentives have boosted blood donation among Hopkins employees, but even the system-wide blood drive committee was surprised by the numbers. Approximately 520 Johns Hopkins Medical Institution employees gave blood during the second-quarter drive, held last June at Turner Concourse. The donations push the institution almost halfway to its 2,500 goal for 2008. A mini-drive, held in July, brought in 93 more pints. Each employee who donates blood during the third quarter is automatically entered for a quarterly raffle prize (this quarter: skybox for a Ravens game) and an annual grand prize of a Caribbean cruise.

New Garage for HCGH

Employees and patients at Howard County General Hospital have something to celebrate: less time searching for a parking spot. A new 542-space parking garage, which opened in July, has five levels and is equipped with various safety features, like emergency call boxes, guard rails, cameras and an elevated security booth that will be staffed 16 hours a day. The garage is the first phase of the hospital’s $105 million, 233,656-square-foot expansion and renovation project, expected to be completed in the fall of 2011.
