Doctors' pay: IN hospitals fighting to keep it under wraps

The Indianapolis Star, August 27, 2014

Indiana law gives you the right to know how much public employees make. A quick database search on the Indiana Gateway for Government Units is all it takes to see just how much money every teacher, police officer and city council member brought home last year. Right now, the database includes doctors and staff at county hospitals. But the Indiana Hospital Association is trying to change that. County hospitals say they're put at a disadvantage when they have to make doctor salaries publicly available, said Spence Grover, vice president of IHA. Doing so gives private hospitals they compete with access to internal information from their publicly owned competitors, but the reverse isn't true.
