Executive Compensation at Houston Methodist

by Anne Paddock

Houston Methodist describe a large system of non-profits that include hospitals (7) , research institutes, a foundation, physician groups, 120 care locations and more throughout the greater Houston area. Although the organizations employ more than 22,000 people, this post only addresses the executive compensation reported by the Methodist Hospital Group – a 501 (c) (3) considered to be the “group return” although the other major two non-profits within the organization (Houston Methodist Specialty Physician Group and the Houston Methodist Hospital Foundation) file separate Form 990’s to the IRS. However, the group return does list the compensation of employees of affiliated or related organizations.

The Methodist Hospital Group employed 11,025 individuals in 2016 who were compensated $712 million which equates to an average compensation of $64,600.  674 employees received more than $100,000 in compensation with the 49 most highly compensated employees listed below:
