Atrium Health Floyd’s Educational Assistance Plan is designed to attract, retain and encourage teammates by providing opportunities to advance their education and for professional development.

The Plan provides teammates with financial assistance for approved academic and continuing education expenses for Atrium Health job-related education and may include preparing for or maintaining a license or certification.

There are options for reimbursement and if eligible, prepaid educational assistance. Enrollment is voluntary, and use of education assistance does not obligate Atrium Health to promote, reassign or reward the participant.

Teammates must complete the Atrium Health Floyd Educational Assistance Plan Application, which requires approval from their department Director and Executive Team member, and be accepted into the Plan prior to any submissions to Bright Horizons. Bright Horizons is Atrium Health’s partner that provides the EdAssist portal that participants utilize once accepted into the Plan to submit Program Course Approval Applications. Any submissions to Bright Horizons without prior Plan acceptance will be denied.
