Salary for hospital management/administrators?

  1. I'm considering doing my Master's in health and administration. I've been trying to research the salary range for those in management and administration roles within the hospital sector. I have been unlucky. It's very vague in Ontario.

    Can anyone provide any data on this for me? What's a typical annual salary? and what position is it you are quoting for.

    Thanks

    I have a friend - RN that recently went back for her MHA - she already was in management at an 80 bed acute care hospital in a rural area. Once she finished the degree, she was promoted to Clinical Administrative Officer and is making $167,500/year plus incentive bonuses for financial and clinical quality performance. She could easily bring home more than $200,000 in 2007...

    Can I ask her age and which city/town the hospital is near?

    I've only just graduated, but would like to work my way upwards as soon as I can.

    Thanks again.

    Actually it is very easy to see how many managers/nursing exec.'s make in Ontario. Anyone who makes over $100,000 on the public payroll (nurses and hosp administrators included) is public knowledge and this is readily available to anyone who wants to look it up. (Try Googling "Ontario's Public Sector Salary Disclosure") The local papers love to publish how much our chief nursing officer makes yearly (about $160,000). I have seen the list myself. Nurse managers however don't do so well, they seem to start at about $60,000 and go up from there.

    It's quite funny to see a R.N making over 100k a year. That's quite a bit of overtime

    Thanks for the help. The page was quite useful.

    What I don't understand is that if everyone making 100k+ is suppose to be known public, why aren't all doctors up there? I noticed only certain hospitals have few doctors and some have none (ie. Grand River). Does that mean in that particular hospital those doctors aren't making over 100k? It doesn't make any sense.

    Hi, this page is interesting indeed. i wanted to know if doctors from India(without clearing the Canadian licensing exams) with an Indian full time MBA also allowed to join the hospital administration?and how differently are they treated from the administrators from nursing? how does it work?

    You can ask Health Force Ontario if there is an organization that assesses internationally educated health administrators to see if their education is equivalent to Canadian health administrators, http://www.healthforceontario.ca/Jobs/AccessCentre.aspx
    You can also ask them what the job prospects are for someone with your education.

    I don't know if you figured out the answer to your question (this is a very old post so I am guessing you have) but the doctors listed in the Public Sector Salary Disclosure list are doctors who are on a salary, many are researchers or doing other things besides direct patient care. The majority of physicians in Ontario are not on salary, they provide direct patient care and bill for service. They not required to publicly disclose their income and their incomes are much higher than the many of doctors on salary.

    BTW did you return to school for a MHA?
