Survey Redesign

Health Care Management and Executive Compensation

Our Manager and Executive Compensation in Hospitals and Health Systems Survey underwent a number of changes in 2021 to reflect the evolving structures and business models of health care organizations over the past several years. To represent these changes, this survey has been renamed the Health Care Management and Executive Compensation Survey.

What's New in 2022?


  • Position listing and reporting categories (i.e., parent and subsidiaries) represent more contemporary structures and positions, including emerging jobs
  • Simplified job structures that provide consistent leveling across entities (e.g., the president/CEO position corresponds to the system CEO, entity leader and so forth)

Benchmarking Data for Health Care Organizations

As the health care industry undergoes unprecedented transformation, the role of the reform-era executive is now more complex and demanding than ever. Developing competitive compensation programs that attract, motivate and retain key executive talent is critical and remains a top priority for health care organizations nationwide. Now in its 30th year, this survey provides critical benchmarking data on executive compensation trends and pay practices and is the largest of its kind for health care organizations nationwide.

This year’s compensation and pay practices benchmarks will continue to be delivered via SullivanCotter’s web-based Benchmarks360™ product suite — providing users with self-serve analytics dashboards for their unique reporting needs.
