Report: Pay Tops $1M for 32 California Non-Profit Hospital CEOs

Out of 154 CEOs of California-based hospitals and health systems surveyed by Payers & Providers, 32 earned $1 million or more in 2010.

Payers & Providers collected data from various non-profit hospitals in California, including standalone hospitals, district hospitals, children's hospitals, health systems and the five academic medical centers within the University of California.

Although almost 20 percent of hospital CEOs surveyed made seven figures, the report said compensation increases within the industry have actually remained relatively modest.

George Halvorson, the outgoing president and CEO of Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanent who is retiring this summer, had the highest payday of any California hospital executive, earning $7.74 million in 2010. Of the 32 million-dollar earning CEOs, only two led district hospitals: Michael Covert of Palomar Health in Escondido with $1.09 million and Lee Domanico of Marin General Hospital in Greenbrae with a little more than $1 million.

Many of the figures mirror results from the Institute for Health & Socio-Economic Policy, which released a report last summer on CEO pay of the largest non-profit hospitals and health systems in California.
