NH officials cite hospital executive salaries in call for suit's dismissal

Seacoastonline.com, September 29, 2011

New Hampshire fired back against the 10 hospitals suing it in an attempt to block Medicaid reimbursement cuts, claiming the suit is unnecessary and should be dismissed. Attorneys from the state Attorney General's Office filed multiple motions in response to the suit late last week in U.S. District Court in Concord. The 10 hospitals suing the state are Exeter Health Resources, Dartmouth-Hitchcock, Elliot Health System, Catholic Medical Center, Frisbie Memorial Hospital, Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, Southern New Hampshire Health System, St. Joseph's Hospital of Nashua, Lakes Region General Healthcare and Cheshire Medical Center. The state argues the 10 hospitals can afford the reimbursement cuts. "Despite their nonprofit status, their chief executives in 2009 were highly compensated with salaries and benefits," the state said in its response to the suit.
