Ontario hospital CEOs are not leaving for megabucks in the private sector — Lewis

Saskatoon health policy consultant Steven Lewis agrees with NDP leader Andrea Horwath that there needs to be a cap on Ontario hospital CEO salaries.

While calling the issue mostly symbolic – he says the income of hospital CEOs barely covers Frank Stonach’s tip money – Lewis asserts that most CEOs are not motivated by the pay rate. Nor is there any evidence that CEOs are leaving for megabucks jobs in the private sector. Given hospital CEOs make far more than their counterparts in the public service, why shouldn’t there be a reasonable cap?
