Payment for any time off is made to you from your "Paid Days Off" account. The rate at which you accumulate funds in your account is determined by your years of employment at Florida Hospital as well as the specific division of the hospital in which you work. Employees may "cash out" certain unused "Paid Days Off" at the end of the calendar year. Eligible employees begin accumulating "Paid Days Off" immediately upon employment and may begin using them after three months. Parking Free parking is available to employees.
