Yale New Haven responds to Brill — and he replies
Steven Brill's deep dive on hospital CEO salaries this week led with the example of Norman Roth, the CEO of Greenwich Hospital in southern Connecticut, who earned $56.40 for each night a patient stayed in his hospital. After the article posted, Yale New Haven Health System — which includes Greenwich Hospital — challenged Brill's reporting and his conclusions about Roth's compensation.
So we're posting Yale New Haven's complaint in full, as well as Brill's point-by-point response to their objections. We stand by Brill's reporting, but for those who are interested, read on to see what the objections were and how Brill addresses them.
