Hospital CEO base salary growth stumbles

The CEOs of the top publicly traded hospital companies had pretty hefty compensation packages in 2009, but this year the cash isn't flowing quite as freely for most hospital CEOs, according to the 2010 Healthcare Compensation Study from the Philadelphia-based Hay Group. In fact, only 22 percent of CEOs received a 6 percent or higher increase in their 2010 base salary--the lowest number of CEOs to achieve that level of salary growth in 10 years. By comparison, almost nine out of 10 (89 percent) CEOs enjoyed a minimum 6 percent increase in 2008. Press release
