The big business of non-profit Catholic hospitals

Catholic World News - February 16, 2012

In the American Spectator, George Neumayr contributes a scathing piece about Sister Carol Keehan, the head of the Catholic Health Association.

Noting that Sister Keehan takes in an annual compensation package that approaches $1 million, Neumayr remarks: "Who knew that lobbying for the corporal works of mercy paid so well?"

Catholic hospitals, Neumayr goes on to say, produce enormous revenue streams. Federal funding will increase those revenues. The executives who administer the hospitals are well paid, and the institutions can afford to pay attractive salaries to a representative who will further their interests in Washington.
