Hospitalist Salaries Trending Upward

In 2010, both adult medicine hospitalists and pediatric hospitalists reported increases in their median compensation, according to the Medical Group Management Association and Society of Hospital Medicine's "State of Hospital Medicine: 2011 Report Based on 2010 Data."

Adult hospitalists saw their compensation rise from $215,000 in 2009 to $220,619 in 2010, a 2.6 percent increase, and pediatric hospitalists averaged $160,038 in 2009 and $171,617 in 2010, a 7.2 percent increase.

The report, which gathered information from more than 4,600 hospitalists, also showed compensation methodology for the hospital-employed physicians is still evolving. Adult hospitalists with 50 percent base salary or less made $288,154 on average in 2010 while adult hospitalists who are paid entirely on base salary earned $205,003. The report suggested there is an increased potential for hospitalists to negotiate more for base salary plus incentives based on production and quality metrics.
