Ontario’s hospitals operate in one of the most demanding, complex, accountable healthcare systems in all of Canada. Virtually every aspect of a hospital’s performance is regularly subject to external, independent scrutiny, including compensation of its employees. When salaries are set at Espanola Regional Hospital & Health Centre (ERHHC), they are based on many factors, including, competitive market rates, province-wide union settlements, and comprehensive evaluation conducted by an external agency. Benchmarking has shown that the salaries at ERHHC are on par with our peer hospitals of similar size and complexity across the province.
