A federal judge recently revoked a property tax exemption for a nonprofit hospital in southeastern Pennsylvania. Previously reported by Spotlight PA.

Tower Health charged the hospital it owns exorbitant administrative fees, Judge Christine Fizano Cannon found. The ruling also found that executives were being paid “spectacular” salaries, with bonuses tied to the health care system’s financial success.

Clint Matthews, former CEO of Tower Health, received about $2.5 million in salary and bonuses in fiscal 2020, according to tax returns that nonprofits must file with the IRS.

In north-central Pennsylvania, most hospitals are part of larger medical systems such as the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Geisinger, and Penn Highlands.

In 2020, the CEOs of these systems posted seven-figure revenues. UPMC’s Jeffrey Romoff earned his $9.5 million. Geisinger’s Jaewon Ryu earned his $4.6 million. Penn Highlands’ Steve Fontaine earned his $1.1 million.

To get a complete picture of executive compensation for nonprofit hospitals in north-central Pennsylvania, Spotlight PA compiled a list of total salaries and bonuses from facilities in the area. Data provided by hospitals and affiliated organizations is based on nonprofit tax returns for fiscal 2020, the most recent year for which data is available.
