The Mayo Clinic, one of the most prestigious US hospital systems, pays some of its doctors well into the six-figures, with some physicians commanding base salaries over $500,000.
The Rochester, Minnesota-based hospital is one of the world's largest health systems with about 70,000 employees, $14 billion in annual revenue, and campuses in Minnesota, Arizona, and Florida. It's the top hospital for adults in U.S. News' annual ranking.
Using Department of Labor data, Business Insider got an inside look at compensation at the Mayo Clinic. The hospital system did not respond to a request for comment.
All US-based companies have to disclose how much they pay employees when they hire a foreign worker for a position in the US under a permanent or temporary worker visa. From more than 6,000 visa applications found in the US Office of Foreign Labor Certification's 2019 disclosure data for foreign workers, Business Insider has pulled out data for 258 applications from the Mayo Clinic covering a wide range of positions from research fellows to health systems engineers to nephrologists.
The data represents only a fraction of Mayo Clinic's full employee base. The data also includes only salary, leaving out other compensation like incentives and bonus pay.
The entries below show either a number or a salary range at which an employee was hired. Many of the positions are in Minnesota, where Mayo Clinic has its main campus, but some are located on campuses in Florida and Arizona. Some positions listed had levels, and were consolidated into one job title (for example, Informatics Specialist I and Informatics Specialist II were consolidated to Informatics Specialist).
