Assisted Living Salary & Benefits Study

The Hospital & Healthcare Compensation Service (HCS) is in the process of conducting its 16th annual salary and benefits study.  The Assisted Living Salary & Benefits Report is nationally recognized as the standard for reliable and comprehensive compensation data for assisted living communities. The report, supported by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL), covers management salaries, non-management wages, and fringe benefits.  Last year’s report contained data from over 1,902 assisted living facilities across the nation.

Salaries and bonus payments will be reported according to unit size, revenue size, county, state, region, and nationally. In addition, both for-profit and not-for-profit data will be separately covered in the report. Information on 18 fringe benefits will be reported according to region. Percent increases planned for 2014 will be reported for management, non-management, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nurse aids.
