SLEEP CENTER CEO/OWNER/VICE PRESIDENT
For the third year in a row, median salaries for sleep center CEO/owner/vice presidents held steady at $100,000. Respondents from the East South Central region reported the highest median salary at $150,000. Meanwhile, respondents working in the South Atlantic region had the lowest median salary for 2012 at $46,000.
Sleep Review‘s sixth annual survey of sleep professionals and sleep centers around the country was conducted in partnership with Mizuho Securities USA. The salary survey included responses from respondents received between June 16, 2012, and July 2, 2012. Among the respondents, sleep center director/supervisor/managers and registered polysomnographic technologists had the highest rates of participation. Survey participants came from every geographic region and all 50 US states with the Midwest and Southeast regions being the most heavily represented.
It should be noted that our sample sizes were small in regard to particular regions and particular positions in both survey years. This year we saw a 19% decrease in total respondents. In addition, it is unlikely that we had the same responders as last year, so an apples to apples comparison between years cannot be assumed. For these reasons, we recommend that readers interpret the data with the above caveats in mind.
The salary figures are the respondents’ base salaries; they do not include the value of additional bonuses, stock options, or other incentives.
