ER doctors take top spots in pay among WRHA employees

  • Print

Emergency room physicians continue to top the list of highest-paid employees of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.

ER doctors took the top 11 spots in this year’s compensation disclosure by the WRHA, led by Dr. Ronald Allan Scrapneck, who earned $581,905.26.

Arlene Wilgosh, the WRHA’s chief executive officer, pocketed $353,447.79 in 2013, according to the report released this morning. That put her 17th on the list of region employees earning $50,000 or more.

The list stretches for 163 pages.

Dr. Brock Wright, the region’s senior vice president, earned $335,664.97, good for 24th spot.

In all, ER doctors accounted for 20 of the 25 highest paid employees of the WRHA in 2013, the report shows.

But as lengthy as the list is, it is not inclusive as it sounds.

It only includes compensation paid to individuals employed by facilities and services directly owned and operated by the WRHA plus a handful of others.

So the report includes employees of Health Sciences Centre, Grace Hospital, Victoria General Hospital and Deer Lodge Centre. It also includes Pan Am Clinic, Manitoba eHealth, Community Area Services, Churchill Health and River Park Gardens.

But it does not include people who work at: St. Boniface General Hospital, Riverview Health Centre, Misericordia Health Centre, Seven Oaks General Hospital and Concordia Hospital, which are separate legal entities and would produce their own reports. No personal care home other than River Park Gardens, which is owned by the WRHA, is included.

Fee for service payments to physicians made by Manitoba Health are also not included in the WRHA report.
