Surgeon's $2.8 million tops in pay at OH's nonprofit hospitals

The Columbus Dispatch, June 17, 2014

But after completing his orthopedic surgery fellowship 14 years ago, Dr. Brian Cohen found plenty of opportunity for a career he's passionate about in this town of 22,000 on the edge of Appalachia. It wasn't love at first sight, Cohen admitted. But the physician practice that had handled orthopedic procedures for Adena Health System had recently pulled out, and its hospital employed no orthopedic surgeons.
