Grassley: Who approved these hospital CEO bonuses?

The Washington Post, June 26, 2013
Sen. Charles Grassley, a longtime member of the Senate Finance Committee and frequent critic of nonprofit hospitals, wants to know whose idea it was to pay hospital CEOs annual bonuses surpassing a million dollars in some cases. "Is the board in control?" he asked in an interview. "Is the board making these decisions and how do they make these decisions? Are they running the show or is the CEO running them?" The Iowa Republican was responding to a report by Kaiser Health News and ABC News that showed CEOs reaping bonuses for profit, revenue and other financial goals even as policymakers talk about the need to promote efficiency instead of volume.
