Executives at Oregon's Good Samaritan Receive Raises, Nurses Picket for Comparable Increases

After finding out several top executives at Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis, Ore., received salary increases ranging from 9.6 to 18 percent from 2008 to 2009, more than 75 hospital nurses part of the Oregon Nurses Association held an informational picket asking for comparable pay raises, according to a Corvallis Gazette-Times report.

Good Samaritan CEO Steve Jasperson's salary increased from $232,186 to $259,075 during that time frame, the report said. Nurses said they gave up financial concessions in their last contract, which expired at the end of June, and now they are asking for raises of up to 14 percent.

In response, Mr. Jasperson said the market drove the raises for the management staff and added that salaries for nurses at Good Samaritan are on par with other nearby hospitals.
