Three executives from Virtua, the expanding health system in South Jersey, were among the Philadelphia region's 10 highest-paid hospital and health-system executives in 2010, based on salary and incentives, an Inquirer analysis of pay for 460 executives at nine area health systems and 13 independents found. Virtua broke into a group typically dominated by the region's larger systems and medical centers, such as Jefferson Health, the University of Pennsylvania, and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, thanks to incentives that in two of the three cases dwarfed base pay. The overall biggest payday, excluding amounts reported in previous years, went to Robert V. Stanek, who collected $6.94 million, much of it in retirement benefits, at the end of a long career at Catholic Health East, The Inquirer's analysis found.
