Ailing Connecticut hospitals good to CEOs
Hartford Courant, January 28, 2008
Over the last few years, Connecticut's hospitals have been pleading with lawmakers for millions in taxpayer dollars to shore up their sinking bottom lines. At the same time, the amount those hospitals paid their top executives has nearly doubled. Salaries paid to top hospital executives grew an estimated 95 percent from 2002-2006, according to a task force convened by Gov. M. Jodi Rell.
