Windsor Regional Hospital Salary Disclosure

Windsor, ON  –  

In accordance with the Ontario Public Salary Disclosure Act, 1996, Windsor Regional Hospital is releasing its report, which lists all employees who earned in excess of $100,000 in salary and their taxable benefits for the 2013 calendar year.

2013 resulted in a major restructuring of the governance and operations of hospital healthcare services in Windsor. On October 1, 2013 Windsor Regional Hospital became responsible for all acute care programs and services in Windsor and Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare became responsible for all sub-acute care services.

Even before the realignment of hospital healthcare services Windsor Regional Hospital was the largest healthcare facility in the Erie St. Clair LHIN with 523 beds, a staff compliment of over 2,900 employees and a budget of $325 million.

As of October 1, 2013, Windsor Regional Hospital has an operating budget of $470 million per year, 4,000 employees and close to 700 acute care beds.

Both non-union and union salaries have been based on a survey of comparable hospitals in order to determine an appropriate and fair compensation program based on the responsibilities at Windsor Regional Hospital.

When realignment occurred, Windsor Regional Hospital was able to restructure its administrative team. On September 30, 2013, there were 351 administrative team members managing acute care services at the Metropolitan and Ouellette campuses. As of March 2014 there are 292 administrative team members managing acute care services at the Metropolitan and Ouellette campuses. This is a reduction of 59 administrative staff.

As a result of the restructuring of hospital healthcare services, an independent legal and salary review of administrative team members salaries was undertaken by the Board of Directors. It resulted in some modifications in accordance with the provisions of the Broader Public Sector Accountability Act, 2010 in annual salaries to reflect an appropriate and fair compensation program based on the restructuring and the responsibilities at Windsor Regional Hospital as of October 1, 2013. It should also be noted that under the new Excellent Care for All Act, non-union compensation is directly linked to achieving the goals set for the (14) core corporate indicators under the 2012/13 Quality Improvement Plan (QIP).

"Windsor Regional Hospital substantially restructured its hospital healthcare governance and operations in 2013. It is now the 3rd largest community teaching hospital in the Province of Ontario by bed size, number of employees and operating budget but has a small number of employees, 1.7% percent above the threshold of $100,000 earnings. This clearly indicates the hospital's commitment to ongoing fiscal responsibility. However, this has to be monitored to ensure our fiscal responsibility does not interfere with being able to recruit and retain staff in order to continue being an employer of choice" stated Gay Wrye, Chair of the Board for Windsor Regional Hospital.
