Executive Compensation at the Wounded Warrior Project (2020)

The Wounded Warrior Project is one of the most well-known non-profit charitable organizations focused on rebuilding the lives of wounded veterans. Established in 2003, the Wounded Warrior Project (Wounded Warrior) is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida with about 800 employees. A 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, their mission is to “honor and empower wounded warriors.”

There are 13 independent voting members (directors) of the governing body although only 14 are listed on the Form 990 (2019 for the year ending September 30, 2020) which appears to be due to timing differences. 9 directors are male and 5 are female. Read more »


AdventHealth Hendersonville and Google Reviews

If you google “AdventHealth Hendersonville” a score of 3.1 out of 5.0 from 190 reviewers (as of December 5, 2021) comes up which in terms of Google reviews is not very good.  Read through the reviews and learn about some very unhappy experiences at this hospital in Hendersonville, NC that is owned by a huge healthcare system referred to as AdventHealth whose parent company is Adventist Health System who has dozens of hospitals and operate in about a dozen states in the US which makes them a big player in healthcare.

In fairness to AdventHealth Hendersonville there are also some very happy clients who wrote positive reviews. But, overall a 3.1 out of 5.0 generally means there are a lot of very unhappy people out there (about 80 people gave AdventHealth 1 star with several saying they would give 0 stars if they could).

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 nearly 50 hospitals and hundreds of care sites 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) because the most recent (2019) IRS Form 990 is available for this entity (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 in this post. Read more »

AdventHealth Hendersonville: An Open Letter to Brandon Nudd, President and CEO

On June 13, 2021 I was admitted to the AdventHealth emergency room in Hendersonville, North Carolina with extreme pain underneath my right shoulder blade and lower right neck.  I presented as a 60-year old very healthy (taking no meds) athletic person who had not changed any sporting activity in the previous weeks  leading up to the visit.  I was seen by Dr. Smith and her PA who examined me and who diagnosed “back and shoulder pain with suspected spasms.” Read more »
