According to the 2018 Hospital Executive Compensation Report published by Total Compensation Solutions (TCS) the average bonus for a hospital CEO is 33.2% of base salary. Project Manager Tom Bailey noted: “We saw a wide range of bonuses from 0% to 269% of base salary with approximately 76% of hospitals reporting they actually pay their CEO a bonus.” TCS observed one of the strongest factors in determining the size of bonuses paid to hospital CEOs is revenue size in addition to the standard performance metrics used in the hospital industry.
