Health Boss Duckett Receives $149,000 in benefits
Alberta Health Services CEO, Stephen Duckett has announced to fetch nearly $744,000 in total compensation recorded in the last fiscal year. It reported that the net compensation included $149,000 in bonuses in addition to other advantages.
The superboard reportedly landed into $885-million deficit.
The Thursday revelation of AHS's financial statements for the 2009-10 fiscal year outlines that nearly a dozen vice-presidents and other senior executives also fetched annual compensation of some hundreds of thousands of Dollars.
Duckett was reportedly paid $595,000 in base salary, accompanied with a $139,000 in other cash benefits that included bonuses, overtime and vacation payouts. Also, $10,000 was given in non-cash benefits that involved contributions to a pension plan.
Health organizations and opposition parties are of the view that bonuses fetched by Duckett and his senior group are very high for an organization that has not witnessed any improvement.
The superboard CEO got a bonus of nearly 25 per cent of his salary -- or $143,750 in direct bonus pay.
Health Minister, Gene Zwozdesky said, "There's still some work to do. By and large, his performance has been satisfactory. The board felt this was fair and adequate compensation".
