Executive Compensation at AdventHealth

by Anne Paddock

AdventHealth (formerly known as Adventist Health System until 2019 when the 501 (c) (3) “rebranded” itself) is one of the largest non-profit health care providers in the United States with 47 hospitals in 9 states. Based in Altamonte Springs, Florida, AdventHealth is a very large system with dozens of separate 501 (c) (3)’s for the hospitals, physician care, patient care, and more. This post looks at the executive compensation at  Adventist Health System Sunbelt Healthcare Corporation (AHSSHC) and Adventist Health System West (AHSW) because the most recent IRS Form 990’s are available for these two entities (before the organization was rebranded to AdventHealth). It is important to note there are dozens of other related and affiliated non-profits related to AdventHealth that are not covered under this post.

The Form 990 reports the organization paid for first class and charter travel, travel for companions, tax indemnification and gross up payments, health or social club dues and/or initiation fees, housing allowance and/or residence for personal use, and discretionary spending accounts. For detailed information on these expenses, see Schedule J, Part III, Supplemental Information.  After reading this information, you may ask yourself why these 19 individuals were paid millions of dollars, flew first class, flew charter, had companion tickets paid for, provided housing allowances or residences for personal use, health and social club fees paid for along with receiving tax indemnification and gross up payments when THEY WORK FOR A NON-PROFIT?
