Physician Referral Program
EHS employed physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and credentialed behavioral health specialists are eligible for a $5,000.00 referral bonus if they refer a physician that becomes employed by EHS.
All employed physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and credentialed behavioral health specialists are eligible for the program.
