27 Statistics on Hospital CFO Salary Adjustments and SERPs

Last year, hospital CFOs saw an average salary raise of 4.41 percent, down from an average increase of 5.92 percent in 2011-12, according to a survey from Yaffe & Co., a healthcare compensation consulting firm.

Most CFOs at the smallest hospitals, those with net patient revenue a couple million dollars to $100 million, saw smaller salary raises compared with last year's figures. However, some CFOs at larger hospitals who were paid in the 75th percentile still received larger-than-average raises, with some earning up to 9 percent more.

Supplemental executive retirement plans are also rising in prominence for hospital CFOs, particularly for those at the largest organizations. Among hospitals with at least $200 million of net patient revenue, roughly 45 percent of CFOs had a SERP.

Here are 27 statistics on average salary adjustments and SERPs for hospital CFOs. Note: The survey received responses from 406 hospitals and health systems. Forty-one percent of hospital respondents had net patient revenue between $35 million and $199 million, while 39 percent had net patient revenue less than $35 million. All average adjustments include increases, decreases and freezes in base salaries.
