Employee Stock Ownership Program

Acuity Healthcare is a proud employee owned healthcare provider …

  • We desired to implement a plan that best preserves our company legacy, culture, and most importantly its employees.
  • We desired to provide broad based employee ownership that allows employees to benefit directly in our company’s future success.
  • We created an Employee Owned Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) in 2013.
  • Acuity Healthcare is the only hospital company that is 100% employee owned.
  • We are owned by members of the local communities to which we provide healthcare services.

What does this mean to our employees …

  • This allows our employees to take pride in what they do while producing a culture of ownership.
  • We offer a benefit that allows employees to focus on the care of our patients.

What does this mean to our physicians, patients and their families …

  • ESOPs are associated with lower voluntary employee turnover.1
  • Managed ESOPs experience increased productivity growth with greater engaged employees.2
  • Lower employee turnover with more engaged employees translates to a more stable working and visiting environment for our physicians, patients, and their families.
