Trustees urge raise for Salinas, CA, hospital CEO
Monterey County Herald, January 12, 2009
A big pay boost proposal for Salinas, CA-based Natividad Medical Center's top administrator received a thumbs-up from the hospital's trustees during a special meeting. The hospital board unanimously approved a recommendation to increase the annual salary range of the Natividad Chief Executive Officer by nearly two-thirds, not counting benefits, to between $283,500 and $387,000. The recommendation seeks smaller pay boosts for other top hospital administrators, and would cost the hospital nearly $490,000 more this fiscal year alone. Supervisors will have the final say on the proposed pay boost.
