Navigating Executive Compensation Challenges

Creating value through governance, alignment, and performance.

At Integrated Healthcare Strategies, a division of Gallagher Benefit Services, Inc., we focus on total compensation from a unique perspective—allowing us to collaborate better, utilize better data, and provide better service—to ensure you have a market competitive executive pay program as well as meet IRS rules, determine reasonableness, and avoid sanctions. Our guidance and solutions make it easy for boards to make well-informed decisions, follow best practices and respond to IRS, media, and constituents—important factors in a changing healthcare environment.

Our senior consultants are nationally recognized experts in healthcare executive compensation and benefits. They have the experience, knowledge, and skill to confidently guide boards, compensation committees, and senior leadership through the complexities of changing regulations, the intricacies of stakeholder relationships, and the ever-increasing competition for the best leaders in healthcare.

We combine our experience and insight with cutting-edge market intelligence, including a proprietary database of more than 2,000 healthcare systems, hospitals, associations, medical groups, and other related organizations—covering more than 17,000 executives. This comprehensive resource allows Gallagher Integrated to customize selected peer groups, value unique and unusual jobs, and ultimately provide insight beyond what is found in industry surveys.

At Gallagher Integrated, we understand that executive compensation is about more than just the data. It is about how to use data to create value—from instilling trust and confidence in the board to designing innovative compensation and benefit solutions, to recruiting, retaining, and rewarding the best healthcare executives.
