Top 5 nonprofit hospitals for executive pay

On average, the top executives at the 82 largest nonprofit health systems were paid $3.5 million annually in fiscal year 2017, according to a new oversight report analyzing the top 82 nonprofit hospitals. 

As part of its study, OpenTheBooks.com — a government watchdog organization that analyzes finances and compensation data — worked to find the highest-paid nonprofit healthcare executives. The organization did not identify the top paid executives by name. However, they listed the nonprofit health system and the total compensation that the top-paid exec received in fiscal year 2017.

The five health systems and the amount their top-paid exec recieved in fiscal year 2017: 

1. Banner Health (Phoenix), paid its top executive $21.6 million.

2. Memorial Hermann Health (Houston) paid its top executive $18.2 million.

3. Ascension St. Louis (St. Louis) paid its top executive $13.1 million.
