Hospital Executives Earned $94.4 Million in 2014

That figure represented 150 executives who worked in Oregon’s nonprofit hospitals

Top-ranking hospital executives command huge salaries, particularly those whose domain includes multiple medical centers in Oregon.

Once again The Lund Report delved into the 990s filed by the nonprofit hospitals in Oregon to look at their compensation totals in 2014, the latest year figures are available.

Leading the pack, among Oregon executives, was Dave Underriner, senior vice president of Providence Health & Services, whose compensation reached $3 million, followed by George Brown, CEO of Legacy Health, who earned $2 million.

Three hospital executives who ran multi-state hospital systems actually exceeded those amounts. George Halvorson, chairman of Kaiser Permanente who has since retired, earned $10.4 million in 2014, while his successor, Bernard Tyson, took home $5 million. Kevin Lofton Fache, who runs the Catholic Health Initiatives, which owns two hospitals in Oregon, Mercy Medical and St. Anthony, brought home $3.1 million.

Other high achievers include Greg Van Pelt, who had been CEO of the Oregon region for Providence at $1.8 million; Joseph Wilczek, Regional CEO for Catholic Health Initiatives at $1.7 million; Scott Reiner, Director and Vice Chair at Adventist Medical Center at $1.5 million; Alan Yordy, who had been president and CEO of PeaceHealth at $1.4 million and Roy Vinyard, president and CEO of Asante at $1.3 million.
