Health and Well-Being

Medical, dental, and vision coverage

Sound offers comprehensive medical, prescription, dental, and vision coverage with a generous health savings account contribution that increases with tenure.

Disability benefits

To ensure you’re prepared for the unexpected, Sound provides basic long-term disability coverage at no cost to you. You have the option to purchase additional coverage for short-term disability and to supplement your long-term disability benefit.

Life/AD&D insurance

Sound provides group life/AD&D insurance and covers the full premium for this benefit. Optional term life insurance is also available for you, your spouse or domestic partner, and your children at affordable rates.

Pet insurance

For many of us, our dogs and cats are truly members of our families, and veterinary care can be expensive. That’s why we’ve partnered with Pet’s Best to help defray some of the cost of care. Colleagues can enroll anytime.

Lactation support

In support of nursing mothers, we offer reimbursement for expenses from using Milk Stork, a service that allows colleagues traveling for work to safely ship breastmilk home.

Colleague assistance program

Life is unpredictable. To help you and your household members cope with everyday life, work challenges, stress, family struggles, and other personal issues, find support through our employee assistance program (EAP), available 24/7. Completely confidential, this service is for all employees and members of their household. Enrollment is automatic, and Sound pays the full cost of coverage. Take advantage of our Life Assistance Program, with three covered sessions per year, as well as five covered sessions yearly of well-being coaching.

Peer support program

For more than five years, Sound has invested in a peer support program modeled after Johns Hopkins’ well-known “Caring for the Caregiver” program. Connect confidentially with a trained Sound peer responder by phone to help address stress or trauma from patient-related events, including loss of a patient, a troubling encounter with a patient’s family, and disagreements regarding care.

Patient safety organization (PSO)

We know our clinical colleagues appreciate an organization that puts safety and improving care at the center of what we do. Sound’s PSO It is a legally protected, confidential forum to learn from our own clinical data and gain insight.


We formed this 503(c) public charity to help colleagues cope with unexpected hardships that place undue financial hardship on them and their families. This commitment to our colleagues’ well-being is an opportunity for us to be of service to our own, helping them more quickly get back on their feet.
