From Oregon Patients Rights Assocation (OPRA) blog and facebook page:
According to The Lund Report, Mercy Medical Center CEO, Kelly Morgan was paid $696,946* in compensation for 2011 broken down as follows:
Base pay: $424,199;
Deferred Compensation: $58,064;
Nontaxable Benefits: $14,218; &
Other Compensation: $20,932.
During the same year, the percentage of charity given by this non-profit Catholic ministry was down by 23.7 percent, even though “profits” were up by 62.3%.
There seems to be something wrong with this, given Mercy Medical Centers’ whole point of being is to provide charity.
*Although Morgan is Mercy Medical Center’s CEO, his salary is not officially reported on their books because he is paid by Mercy’s parent organization Catholic Health Initiatives.
