CA residents protest high healthcare exec salaries

The San Diego Union-Tribune, April 12, 2011
More than 200 community residents signed petitions raising questions about the salary paid to the CEO at Palomar Pomerado Health and other business practices at the medical organization. "Your highest priorities should be improving the health of our residents ... Out of control executive pay, costly celebrity spokespeople endorsements and out-of-district clinics (are) a waste of public funds," the petition states. The signatures were collected by nurses concerned about the compensation package and other issues over the past months. The petitions were scheduled to be turned over to the Palomar Pomerado Health board of directors Monday night. Specifically, nurses and community residents complained that CEO Michael Covert receives more than $1.1 million a year.
