Safety and Security: Ensuring the safety and security of our employees, their families and friends is a high priority for us, and we participate in the Yuma Crime Free program to help keep illegal activity out of our employee housing communities. Any adult 18 years or older must successfully complete a criminal background check before occupying Yuma Regional Medical Center housing.
Rent Subsidies: Please note that according to IRS regulations, the value of the rent subsidy you receive as an employee of Yuma Regional Medical Center is considered to be taxable income. To comply with this rule, we must post the value of this subsidy to your pay and collect taxes on this value.
Eligible New Hire Housing Options: Newly hired employees who are eligible for hospital-provided housing may choose a one-bedroom furnished apartment (taxable benefit $750 per month) or a two-bedroom furnished apartment (taxable benefit $900 per month).
