The Ottawa Hospital – Salary disclosure for 2013

March 28, 2014 – The Ottawa Hospital (TOH) today released its annual salary disclosure for employees earning more than $100,000 per year.

Approximately two-thirds of TOH employees on the list are frontline health-care providers, including nurses, pathologists, psychologists, physicists, scientists, pharmacists and other health professionals. The remaining one-third includes management (vice-presidents, clinical directors, medical directors, directors and managers), many of whom perform clinical roles.

The Ottawa Hospital takes great care to ensure its employees are compensated appropriately for their leadership roles and determines compensation through a comparative analysis of salary rates at our peer hospitals. The Ottawa Hospital is well within the provincial average compared to similar academic centres in Ontario such as Hamilton Health Sciences, London Health Sciences Centre, Mount Sinai Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and University Health Network. Executive compensation at TOH has been frozen since 2009 and it remains the same for 2013.

Despite leading Ontario’s largest hospital, TOH’s CEO has a salary that is within the average when compared to that of CEOs of other academic health centres. TOH’s mandate, which includes clinical research and education, calls for a strong administrative leader with a clinical background. TOH is proud to note that under our CEO’s leadership, we have balanced 11 consecutive budgets, secured over $1 billion in capital investments, and achieved consistent improvements in the quality of care we provide to patients across Eastern Ontario.

Dr. Jack Kitts’s salary is established by the Board of Governors based on a salary survey and report by a third-party expert in the field. One-quarter of his compensation is tied to his ability to meet specific targets for performance indicators that are monitored closely by the Board.
