New Jersey health system to lift minimum wage to $15.15

One of the state's largest nonprofit health systems will increase its minimum wage for employees to $15.15 per hour. 

The change, effective Jan. 1, will raise wages of 900 to 1,000 people, including full-time, part-time and per-diem employees of Marlton, N.J.-based Virtua.

"Virtua is consistently listed among the best places to work in the region due in large part to a commitment to recruiting and retaining talent. Leadership routinely evaluates all aspects of what makes us a respected and sought-after employer, and have been contemplating this move for some time. We want to send a clear signal to our employees that we care about them," said Virtua President and CEO Dennis Pullin.

Virtua's total workforce is more than 9,000.
