The health care company announced to its employees it’ll be moving its minimum pay to $15 per hour starting April 26.

Colleagues on-call can expect an increase from $2.00 to $2.50 with a goal of $3.00 by January 2022.

In a statement, MercyOne said, "MercyOne is committed to the well-being of our colleagues and ensuring they are able to live their best lives. In support of this commitment, a $15 minimum wage has been implemented across all MercyOne sites of care. Our colleagues have shown a personal commitment to our mission by the care and compassion they provide to each person we are privileged to serve.  This change in our wage program is just one way MercyOne can help each of our amazing colleagues and their families have a brighter future.”
