University Hospital CEO to earn $416K as head of newly independent state hospital
NEWARK — The new president and chief executive officer of University Hospital in Newark will earn more than $416,000 a year as the first leader of the newly independent state institution, hospital officials said. James Gonzalez was named head of University Hospital July 1 after the medical center was spun off from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey during a statewide higher education reorganization. After his appointment last month, a University Hospital spokeswoman declined to reveal Gonzalez's salary or any details about his contract. But hospital officials released the information this week after The Star-Ledger filed a request through the state's Open Public Records Act.
