Mayo Clinic to give delayed pay raises in 2017

Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic has disclosed it will implement "salary adjustments" for its allied health staff, the Post Bulletin reports, though they won't immediately take effect.

According to a memo from the health system last month, Mayo staff will see pay ranges increase by 2 percent. The increase would be "calculated by multiplying the new pay range maximum by 3 percent" for allied health staff at Mayo Clinic campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota, as well as all shared services staff at Mayo Clinic Health System, which is part of Mayo Clinic.

However, the pay adjustments won't kick in until Feb. 22 for Mayo staff at the Arizona, Florida and Minnesota campuses, and those at MCHS will be delayed until June 28.

Mayo Clinic officials declined to confirm the pay increases outlined in the internal memo, but Mayo Clinic Vice President Bobbi Gostout and Chief Administrative Officer Mark Koch explained in a video how the delayed raises will "help ensure the affordability of this year's salary adjustment for Mayo Clinic Health System," according to the report.

"Mayo Clinic's compensation program is competitive, and salary adjustments are made based on market trends and affordability," Mayo spokesperson Kelley Luckstein wrote in a response to inquiries about pay raises. "Mayo Clinic is committed to a compensation and benefits program that supports the mission of Mayo Clinic. Salary increases allow us to continue to attract and retain the best employees and staff who make Mayo Clinic a destination for providing hope and healing. Specific details about the program are not shared publicly."
