Hospital Strategy: Revenue Generated Per Doctor



Published
A Survey of Hospital CFOs by the Physician Recruiting Firm Merritt Hawkins Found that Doctors Drive $1.56 Million in Hospital Revenue Per Doctor Per Year by Ordering Tests, Performing Procedures, Etc.

Orthopedic Surgeons Generated the Most at $2.75 Million in Hospital Revenue Per Orthopedist Per Year.

Interventional Cardiologists Generated $2.45 Million in Hospital Revenue Per Cardiologist Per Year.

General Surgeons Generated $2.17 Million in Hospital Revenue Per Surgeon Per Year.

Family Practice Doctors Generated $1.5 Million in Hospital Revenue Per Doctor Per Year.

This Emphasis on Revenue Metrics at Hospitals May Be a Sign of Misplaced Prioritization Away from Patients and Their Well-Being.

Conversely, There Are Examples of Innovative Hospitals Changing Their Metrics to Put Quality First... and Even Reduce Healthcare Costs.

University Hospitals in Cleveland is One Such Example.
