NEWPORTS NEWS-On October 7, Riverside Health System announced that it would be increasing compensation for its employees beginning in January due in part to express gratitude for their dedication throughout the covid-19 pandemic. Riverside is committing an investment of more than $20 million toward this compensation for all team members up to the manager level.

“Every individual in our organization is essential to the high-quality care our patients receive, which is why our recognition efforts are directed at those who have continued to tirelessly support our community during the covid-19 pandemic,” said Bill Downey, CEO of Riverside Health System, in a statement. “We are proud of their resilience and commitment to Riverside, our patients and residents over the past 18 months, and we will continue to grow as an organization in order to maintain the safety, health and well-being of our team members and the communities we serve.”

More than 80 percent of Riverside Health System’s employees will benefit from the compensation additions, which include increasing the starting pay to $15 per hour as well as other pay enhancements.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
