Who are you hiring for your C-suite? 10 statistics

Forty-four percent of internal hospital or health system CEO promotions were former COOs, according to a recent Billian's HealthDATA report.

The healthcare market sees a plethora of C-suite moves each year. Billian's HealthDATA released a report pooling data from 384 executive moves from January to July of 2014. Here are 10 statistics on hospital hiring, according to the data.

1.    Forty percent of placements were internal promotions, whereas 60 percent of hospital placements involve an outside-hire.
2.    More than half (58 percent) of CEO outside-hires were former CEOs of other hospitals.
3.    CEO moves to other CEO positions at sister campuses made up 12 percent of internal movements.
4.    The promotion of hospital CEOs made up 21 percent of promotions from a hospital to a health system.  
5.    Seventeen percent of hospital COOs were hired from CNO positions.
6.    The promotions of hospital COOs represented 25 percent of hospital to health system promotions.
7.    There were no instances of CIO hires with former job details recorded. Billian's suggests that healthcare currently relies heavily on their key IT officials and dislikes major personnel shifts during digital overhauls.  
8.    Women represented 28 percent of C-suite hires.
9.    Physicians represented 14 percent of C-suite hires.
10.    Only 3 percent of placements involved new hires from outside the hospital and health system market.

Note: Billian's HealthDATA and Porter Research used a sample of 384 executive move news items, documented in the Billian's Vitals news lineup that include details on the positions previously held by new hires. Titles represented among those executive moves included CEOs, COOs, CFOs , CMOs, CNOs, vice president or director-level hires and those placement announcements including personnel migration from the hospital C-suite to the corporate health system.
