Share on Facebook

In 2011-12, the latest data available, the compensation for the CEOs and top leaders of the nation's 25 highest-grossing nonprofit hospitals totaled more than $52.7 million, or an average of $2.1 million per executive.

According to the most recent IRS Form 990s filed by each hospital, CEOs at some of the largest hospitals earned anywhere from a low of $540,000 to a high of $6.07 million.

Here are the compensation figures of those hospitals' CEOs and/or top strategic leaders. Names and figures are presented in order based on the organization's rank in the most recent Becker's Hospital Review list of "50 Top-Grossing Nonprofit Hospitals."

Note: All compensation figures include base salaries, bonuses, incentives, deferred compensation and other reportable compensation from the institution's Form 990. Figures are based on the most recently filed Form 990 as posted on Guidestar. Hospitals that are part of systems and did not list data for individual CEOs are represented by the health system CEO.
