Illinois Healthcare Administration Salaries - IL

In Illinois, healthcare administration salaries are about $83,000 per year, which includes a variance for newly hired healthcare administration and management professionals. Because healthcare administrators have the responsibility of operating an entire medical facility on a day-to-day basis, they are dually compensated for their accountability.

An independent study found that approximately 1.4% more citizens were enrolled in the Medicaid program in 2008 than were in 2007. Any percentage increase over 0.10% is considered significant. What this means to healthcare administrators in Illinois is that regardless of who is paying the bill, the message is clear: more people need healthcare. When more people need healthcare, healthcare managers must be on-hand to run the operations of any given medical facility.

Furthermore, in a 2008 study conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the highest-paying positions for healthcare administrators in Illinois were found in general medical and surgical hospitals; whereas the lowest-paying positions were found in nursing care facilities. This is not meant to deter you, but rather to give you an idea of how facility type can affect your salary in Illinois.

Consider also that geographic location can sometimes impact salary. Listed below is data showing the average healthcare administration salary in Illinois by city:

  • Chicago: $78,000
  • Aurora: $60,000
  • Rockford: $67,000
  • Joliet: $85,000
