St. Louis Post-Dispatch, July 26:
New pay model leads some physicians to leave Mercy
Mercy Health has adopted a new compensation model for physicians, but some doctors are unwilling to sign the new contracts.
Mercy executives report the new pay structure is an effort to standardize compensation for all 2,100 Mercy-employed physicians across the system’s four-state operation, including Missouri. But the model also addresses the changes occurring in the health care industry, system officials report.
