The salary for the top administrator of the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, according to Revenue Canada tax returns is at least $350,000
The fundraising executives of the foundations of the McGill University Health Centre are the highest-paid of Montreal’s hospitals.
According to a Montreal Gazette analysis of their tax filings, the foundations’ revenues plummeted by $27.4 million or 29 per cent.
Hospitals depend greatly on foundations. In the MUHC’s it has had to rely more on the foundations to buy medical equipment and fund programs.
The MUHC’s foundations employ nine executives who each earn $120,000 to $160,000 a year — apart from the top administrator of the Montreal General Hospital Foundation, whose salary is at least $350,000, according to Revenue Canada tax returns.
By comparison, four executives make $120,000 to $160,000 at what is considered the city’s best-performing hospital charity, the foundation of the Jewish General Hospital. No other executive is paid above that salary range, unlike at the MUHC foundations, where two administrators earn $200,000 to $250,000.
