Since it was launched in 2022, Methodist's $10,000 referral bonus program has benefitted employees, patients and the entire system by rewarding employees who have a hand in attracting the best talent to the health system.

In fact, since the program was launched, 149 referrals have approved for the bonus – with several employees eligible to receive the $10,000 bonus twice!

Do you know someone who would be a great addition to our staff? For select positions, take advantage of the bonus referral program  which has been extended through Sept. 30, 2024.


How the program works

Under this temporary referral bonus program, most employees (excluding talent acquisition employees and those who oversee the hired candidate) are eligible for up to a $10,000 bonus for referring someone to a qualifying full-time position.

For a list of eligible positions, click here.

The referral bonus will be paid in two equal installments over the course of a year. For the employee to receive the referral bonus, the referred candidate must:

  • Not be a current employee of Methodist Health System (MHS) or any of its affiliates
  • Complete an application for the position and indicate the referral on their application 
  • Successfully complete all post-offer requirements
  • Begin employment with MHS
  • Remain employed in .9 FTE or greater for:
    • 180 days for the referrer to receive a $5,000 referral bonus
    • one year for the referrer to receive an additional $5,000 referral bonus

Referring employees must also notify MHS of the referral. Those who referred a candidate for any position eligible under this program on or after Dec. 1, 2022, may qualify for the referral bonus. Referrals must be sent via email to @email and will be accepted through Sept. 30, 2024.

Referral submissions must include:

  • Your name, phone number and email address
  • The referred candidate’s full name
  • The eligible position the referred candidate is being referred for
  • The referred candidate’s contact information (phone number and email address)
  • Your relationship to the referred candidate

One referral per email submission please. Referrals for these positions that are submitted by any other method, are not properly identified or do not include all of the required information will not be accepted.

Refer as many candidates as you know! You are eligible to receive this bonus for each newly hired employee that you refer.
