Transplant Administrator Compensation and Trends

TLI recognizes the need for relevant and up-to-date compensation information in the field of transplantation.  Historically, for hospital personnel, this information has been non-existent or difficult to find.  Many hospital compensation and human resources professionals rely on compensation data from large human resource firms and specialists.  These companies do not have any data that is transplant specific and hence transplant professionals are grouped in with hospital employees with related job titles.  This results typically in a non-competitive salary and hinders the ability to hire.  The graph shows our current median base salary data for Transplant Administrators by UNOS region.  We used the median since the sample sizes for each region are small. However, the average was higher than the median in UNOS regions 3,5,7 and 10 which means that most salaries were higher than average but the median was dragged down by outliers.  We see the trend for transplant administrator salaries to decrease due to hospitals hiring or promoting from within.
