Average compensation for healthcare CEOs climbed 2 percent year over year, reaching $5.1 million in 2015, according to a BDO survey.

Although CEOs saw their pay rise last year, healthcare CFO compensation fell 5 percent year over year to $1.7 million in 2015.

"Executive compensation plans continue to be hotly debated in the public as industries like financial services and healthcare grapple with increased scrutiny from stakeholders, lawmakers and consumers around pay practices and performance with continued calls for even more transparency," said Randy Ramirez, managing director in the global employer services practice at BDO. "We expect performance metrics will continue to grow in importance, as will communication plans to help earn shareholder approval."

The BDO survey examined CEO and CFO compensation trends in publicly traded companies with annual revenues from $100 million to $3 billion across several industries, including healthcare.

Across all industries examined, total CFO compensation averaged about 38 percent of total CEO pay.
