This analysis by The Lund Report not only shows the salaries of the top executives at these hospitals, but also takes a detailed look into the profit, net patient revenue, reported charity care, available beds and emergency room visits.

Non-profit hospitals across the state have a mission to serve their community, but an analysis by The Lund Report revealed that many of their CEOs are doing quite well for themselves, too. Across the spectrum of Tuality, Salem , Kaiser Permanente and Asante networks, hospital CEOs were well rewarded for their work.

Dr. Ashish Jha, professor of health policy and management at the Harvard School of Public Health, recently completed a study of executive compensation at every nonprofit hospital in the country. He found that typical CEOs earn between $400,000 and $500,000 –more at large institutions, or if they oversee more than one hospital, and less if they work in rural areas. Jha’s research looked at total reported compensation, a figure that includes actual pay as well as benefits like retirement plans and other benefits that executives don’t bring home.
