COMPENSATION MONITOR

Extenders' pay gains exceed physicians'

One of the effects of managed care is greater responsibility for all participants in the health care industry -- not just physicians. Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Service recently surveyed 195,410 employees of 381 hospitals in the nation to measure salary trends for nurse practitioners and physicians assistants for its Hospital Salary & Benefits Report. The company also surveyed 12,725 physicians who work with 314 hospitals, group practices, and HMOs for its Physician Salary Survey Report.
