County hospitals chafe at posting doctors’ pay

– Indiana county hospitals say a state law that requires them to make the salaries of doctors and staff public is putting them at a disadvantage.

The Indiana Hospital Association says publishing doctors’ salaries is different from posting the pay of city council members because it gives private competitors access to internal information. It wants an exemption from the public records law.

Vice President Spence Grover tells The Indianapolis Star that few county hospitals receive any property tax money.

The State Board of Accounts requires compensation data for every unit of government in Indiana. But less than half the county hospitals in Indiana filed compensation disclosure forms with the state.
