This information comes from a STAT Plus e-mail. STAT is an information service targeted toward medical professionals and has a lot of interesting medical news. Written by Rick Berke, Co-founder & Executive Editor.
**For the past several months, a team of reporters, editors, and data specialists at STAT sought to document the fortunes of the top executives at our nation's biggest health care companies.**
**The results, published in a series of six stories today, are stunning: CEOs of roughly 300 companies collectively took home $4.5 billion last year. That is seven times what the CDC had to spend on managing infectious diseases in 2021, a year in which America approached 1 million deaths due to Covid-19.**
**We have published a story on our top-line findings as well as a piece that documents the chasm between executives at health care companies and employees who work on the frontlines.**
Here are the links to those stories.
