Our medical insurance offers three different options to employees with USHG sharing the cost of the premium with enrolled employees.
  • Dental Insurance: USHG offers two dental policies: an in-network plan, and an out-of-network plan. We cover 100% of the cost of the “In Network” Plan for you (an individual plan) or we will apply a set dollar amount per month to the cost of your plan if you choose to add dependants or to go out-of-network using the Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan.

  • Transit Program: All employees are eligible to elect to set aside pre-tax dollars each month toward the cost of commuting. You may choose up to the Federal Allowed maximum per month and these elections are deducted pre-tax. As a result you will pay less in taxes each year.
  • 401(k) Plan: USHG offers a voluntary retirement investment plan that allows you to defer a portion of your income and use pre-tax dollars to save for your retirement. All employees who are 21 years of age or older may elect to participate after 12 months of continuous employment.
  • Flexible Spending Accounts: All employees who have completed 12 months of continuous, full-time employment may elect to set up Flexible Spending Accounts in January of each year. Flexible Spending Accounts allow employees to defer pre-tax income to pay for certain eligible expenses including health care costs not covered by health insurance, transportation to work, and qualified child care expenses. Flexible Spending allows you to increase the income you take home by reducing the amount of taxes you pay for qualified expenses.
  • Direct Deposit: We offer direct deposit of paychecks to your financial institution at no cost to you. You may sign up for direct deposit at any time.
  • Corporate Discount Programs: As a USHG employee, you can get a discounted rate at area gyms and massage services. We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to stay healthy and strong!
  • Employee Dining Program: Through this program, we hope to make dining in our restaurants a reality for all our employees. The program starts out as a discount program and adds Dining Dollars over time.

Part of Union Square Hospitality Group

Founded by Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group, The Modern is a two Michelin-starred, contemporary American restaurant at the Museum of Modern Art.

Executive Chef Thomas Allan's refined, unexpectedly playful dishes highlight exceptional ingredients and seasonality in three distinct culinary experiences: a bold prix fixe menu in The Modern, overlooking MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden; an à la carte menu in the lively Bar Room; and a bespoke tasting menu in the heart of the kitchen at The Kitchen Table.

Complementing Chef Allan’s menus, an extensive selection of wines showcases exceptional diversity and value in wines both classic and emerging regions. The restaurant's design by the New York-based architecture firm Bentel & Bentel offers a welcome escape from the bustling Midtown neighborhood it calls home.

Since its debut in 2005, The Modern has earned two Michelin stars, three stars from The New York Times, the Grand Award from Wine Spectator and four James Beard Awards, including Best New Restaurant, Outstanding Wine Service, and Outstanding Restaurant Design.

We offer comprehensive medical, dental, vision insurance, 401K, flex pay, life insurance, employee dining program and paid vacation. USHG provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, marital status, amnesty, or status as a covered veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.
