Living in the Berkshires

The Berkshires have an allure that’s hard to beat. First, there’s the scenery – stunning landscapes framed by rolling hills with Mount Greylock, the state’s largest peak, sitting majestically to the north. Next, there’s the culture with world renowned musical venues such as Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra; museums, dance festivals, summer theaters that attract major actors to our local stages and a literary history that spans centuries and includes Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edith Wharton.

The Berkshires has a vibrant sports and recreational community in an area with the right kind of geography for year-round activities. Five ski resorts are located in the Berkshire hills, with rivers for fishing, canoeing and kayaking; country roads for jogging and biking, beautiful lakes and plenty of scenic trails for hiking and backpacking. Each year, triathletes throughout the northeast converge on the Berkshires for the legendary Josh Billings Run Aground.

We are the home to exceptional centers of higher education, including Williams College, the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and Berkshire Community College, and feature a business community that ranges from plastics technology and manufacturing businesses and General Dynamics to the biggest names in retail, outstanding restaurants, and much more.

Less than three hours from Boston and New York City, The Berkshires are a cluster of small, New England cities and towns that have easy access to large metropolitan centers. Our quality of life is outstanding. At Berkshire Health Systems, we often find that many of our physicians and staff are attracted to our area because of its beauty and cultural offerings. But ultimately, they decide to stay and raise families here because of the health and wellness that The Berkshires promote.


Berkshire Health Systems offers a competitive benefits package to our physicians. We offer some of the most competitive benefits in healthcare providing both flexibility and choice.

Health Insurance: Several different health insurance plans are available to meet the diverse needs of employees and their families. These options include an innovative wellness plan through Blue Cross that provides generous fitness and weight loss benefits to members. The medical plan is designed to engage you in your healthcare decisions and reward you to change unhealthy behaviors.

Dental Insurance: Physicians with a 24-hour commitment are eligible for dental coverage. Three dental options provide different levels of basic, preventative and restorative services.

Malpractice Insurance: Malpractice insurance is available at no cost to employed physicians.

Short and Long Term Disability Insurance: Both Short-Term and Long-Term Disability programs are available to Berkshire Health System physicians. Eligibility for various options depends on employment status and individual choice of coverage.

Supplemental Life and Accidental Death and Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance: Berkshire Health Systems offers the option to purchase several levels of coverage, for the physician, spouse and children.

Flexible Spending Accounts: There are 2 spending account options available under the Flexible Benefit Program. A Healthcare and/or Dependent Care Spending Account can be established to shelter between $104 and $5,000 eligible expenses from taxation per year under each account. Debit cards are provided to employees to pay for most eligible out-of-pocket expenses at the time of purchase or when services are rendered.

403(b) Plan: Berkshire Health Systems offers a defined contribution pension plan designed as a 403(b) tax-sheltering program. This plan is managed by Diversified Investments Advisors. After one year of employment, BHS will contribute 2.5% of your annual salary. In addition, BHS will contribute a half percent match for every 1% contributed by the employee up to the first 4% of your employee contribution.
