Survey: Relatively flat compensation in an era of many stressors

By: Cynthia Saver, MS, RN

Compensation has remained relatively flat for leaders in ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), according to the 2022 OR Manager Salary/Career Survey, even as leaders face ongoing stressors. This is reflected in the 40% of respondents who reported a total current annual compensation of $120,000 or more—unchanged from 2021. Ongoing stress is reflected in the reasons given by respondents who plan to leave their employers within the next year—one-fourth cited burnout, nearly double last year’s 14%, and 17% cited too much work, up from 12% in 2021.
