Many Calif. Not-for-Profit Hospital System Execs Paid More Than $1M
Sixty-six senior executives at California's three largest not-for-profit hospital systems were paid more than $1 million in 2013, according to an analysis by Payers & Providers.
- 19 were employed by Dignity Health;
- 25 were employed by Kaiser Permanente; and
- 22 were employed by Sutter Health.
The total number is up by nearly 30% from 2011, when 52 senior executives at the three hospital systems received more than $1 million in pay.
The analysis found that pay remained largely consistent from 2011 to 2013, with average total compensation among high earners:
- Increasing from $2.18 million to $2.2 million at Dignity Health;
- Staying at $2 million at Kaiser; and
- Decreasing from $1.93 million to $1.78 million at Sutter.
However, the analysis found that the number of senior executives at not-for-profit hospitals who made at least $1 million substantially increased, especially among CEOs.
A white paper on the analysis and its findings will be released on Nov. 30 (Shinkman, Payers & Providers, 11/12).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. Sign up for an email subscription.
