At Westchester Medical Center, execs get raises, others lose jobs
Westchester Medical Center gave raises to some high-ranking employees and increased its administrative payroll even as the hospital cut the number of top executives and resorted to layoffs amid an ongoing budget crisis. A Journal News analysis of salary data, obtained through a Freedom of Information request, revealed that 20 hospital administrators received increases in their total compensation for 2010, including one employee whose pay package jumped 18 percent. That same year, the medical center laid off 130 workers, instituted a hiring freeze and announced an $18 million budget cut for the following year.
