Healthcare's top executive salaries increase with complexity of system
As reform drives healthcare systems to get bigger and more complex, salaries of top executives are growing with them.

Critics counter that salaries should be viewed through the lens of the 1.5 million uninsured and underinsured Coloradans who can't afford healthcare.
