PTO / Holidays / EIH

Time Away from Work


Roper St. Francis Healthcare provides a PTO program for teammates who are in a benefits-eligible position and are authorized to work 40 or more hours per pay period. PTO can be used for vacations, family illness, holidays and personal time. Accrual rates for PTO are based on most recent benefits eligible date and the total hours paid up to 80 hours per pay period.

As long as you stay in a benefits-eligible position, you may roll over your PTO bank from year to year. The maximum accrual for PTO is 320 hours or 40 days for full-time teammates and 160 hours or 20 days for part-time teammates.

In the event of separation, provided the teammate has a minimum of two years of service and proper notice is given and worked, PTO will be paid as follows: For 2–5 years of service, PTO will be paid out at $.50 on the dollar; for 5 years of service or more, PTO will be paid out at full value.


Paid Time Off Accrual Scheduled PTO is accrued on hours paid and thereafter accruals may vary.
