The chief executive of the nonprofit Children's Hospital has been paid more than $950,000 in each of the past two years, more than three times the national average for hospital presidents and higher than leaders of much larger nonprofit medical institutions in the Washington region.
Edwin K. "Ned" Zechman Jr.'s total compensation rose from $690,000 in 1999 to $950,000 in 2001 and $970,000 in 2002, according to the hospital's most recent filing with the Internal Revenue Service and interviews with Children's officials. The packages include salary, bonuses, deferred compensation and benefits.
In 2000 his compensation totaled $3.05 million, including a $2.46 million prepaid pension lump sum designed by the hospital's board of directors to keep him at Children's until retirement.
Zechman declined to comment for this article (а что тут комментировать? Типа жить хорошо, а хорошо жить еще лучше (с)), but board полностью здесь.
