UPMC is a $10 billion system, which employs some 55,000 people and spokeswoman Susan Manko said executives were fairly compensated for “leading one of the largest and most complex health care enterprises in the country.”
Compensation is tied to performance and quality of care, she said, and a board committee, aided by outside consultants, sets compensation rates.
