Executive Compensation at the New York and Presbyterian Hospital (2018)

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 (2018) submitted to the IRS, includes the following:

Total revenue was $6.3 billion in 2018 (compared to $5.7 billion in 2017) most of which ($6 billion) came from patient care.

Total expenses were $6 billion (including $354 million in depreciation). The four largest expenses were compensation ($3.6 billion), medical supplies ($970 million), office-related expenses ($575 million), and fees for services ($281 million).

The difference between total revenue and total expenses is $354 million, which was added to the general fund.  At the beginning of 2018, the general fund balance was $6.9 billion (compared to $5.8 billion in 2017). After adding the excess revenue ($354 million), unrealized losses on investments (-$58 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 ($215 million), the general fund net balance was $7.4 billion at year-end:  an increase of $500 million in one year.

33,176 (compared to 28,938 employees in 2017) received $3.6 billion in compensation, which equates to an average compensation of $109,000. However, only 6,813 received more than $100,000 in compensation.  The 36 most highly compensated employees were:
