Proactive Disclosure – Executive Compensation

Like all hospitals in Ontario, executive compensation at St. Mary’s General Hospital is tied directly to the organization’s achievement of metrics defined in its Quality Improvement Plan. Each year, members of the Senior Management Team (Executive Team) will have their performance measured against targets in patient safety, effectiveness of care, access to care, and patient-centred approach to care. The Board of Trustees measures and assesses this performance, and then determines what the executive team compensation will be for the fiscal year.

Executive Compensation Policy April, 2013

Currently, St. Mary’s “at-risk compensation” for executive team members is a claw-back of base salary, rather than a ‘bonus’ to base salary.

The following chart outlines executive compensation at St. Mary’s.  Definitions for interpretation can be found in the chart.
