Executive Compensation at the New York and Presbyterian Hospital

by Anne Paddock

New York and Presbyterian Hospital (NYPH) – a non-profit, tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) hospital – is often referred to as New York-Presbyterian Hospital.  But, the NYPH actually consists of 7 hospitals/medical centers.  A teaching hospital in New York City, NYPH is affiliated with two medical schools (Columbia and Weill Cornell) and is part of the New York-Presbyterian healthcare network that includes three other divisions:

  • New York-Presbyterian Regional Hospital Network: 3 hospitals
  • New York-Presbyterian Physician Services:  the medical groups
  • New York-Presbyterian Community and Population Health:  ambulatory care and community health

The entire organization consists of dozens of non-profit, tax-exempt organizations. This post addresses the executive compensation at the NYPH.  Key information about NYPH, as disclosed on the Form 990 (2017) submitted to the IRS, includes the following:

Total revenue was $5.7 billion, most ($5.3 billion) of which came from patient care.

Total expenses were $5.3 billion (including $291 million in depreciation). The four largest expenses were compensation ($3.2 billion), medical supplies ($883 million), office-related expenses ($443 million), and fees for services ($315 million).

The difference between total revenue and total expenses is about $412 million, which was added to the general fund (which some people refer to as the endowment).  At the beginning of 2017, the general fund balance was $5.8 billion. After adding the excess revenue ($412 million), unrealized gains on investments ($46 million), and other changes in net assets – primarily changes in beneficial interest in temporary net assets held by a related organization and changes in the fair market value of alternative investments ($658 million), the general fund balance was $6.9 billion at year-end:  an increase of $1.1 billion in one year.

28,938 employees received $3.2 billion in compensation, which equates to an average compensation of $110,000. However, only 7,274 received more than $100,000 in compensation.  The 35 most highly compensated employees were:
