Most top executives at major nonprofit hospitals in the Boston area were paid more than $1-million in 2010, with some leaders receiving sizable raises or bonuses and one topping $3-million in compensation, according to The Boston Globe.
The newspaper cites financial information that nonprofit medical centers were required to file with the Massachusetts attorney general’s office by Wednesday.
The highest-paid was Dr. Gary Gottlieb, CEO of Partners HealthCare System, with $3.1-million in salary, bonuses, and benefits. Dr. Gottlieb took over leadership of Partners, the holding company for two Harvard University-affiliated hospitals, at the start of 2010.
Dr. Peter Slavin, chief executive at Massachusetts General, was next at $2.5-million. As with Dr. Gottlieb, nearly half of Dr. Slavin’s pay came in the form of retirement benefits that became vested in 2010.
