Cleveland's MetroHealth System's Executive Pay, Bonuses Cause Concern

After a report was released on the pay packages of Cleveland-based MetroHealth System's top executives, ranking it in the top 25 percent of similarly sized health systems, county officials and board members have showed concern about the high compensations, according to a Plain Dealer report.

Compensation advising firm Mercer did the report and found that MetroHealth's executive pay levels were higher and had "more competitive pay levels than has historically been the case," the report said. MetroHealth Board Member John Moss was told the compensation was "closer to the middle," and county council members have said more money needs to go toward healthcare instead of executive salaries.

It was also reported that 42 executives and high-level employees who have left MetroHealth since 2008 have received more than $4 million in consulting contracts as a replacement for severance.
