Virginia Healthcare Administration Salaries - VA

The average salary for healthcare administrators in Virginia is $91,590, which is slightly above the national average, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Applicants that have both experience in healthcare and a strong business management background will earn a higher salary than those with less experience. Salary is also dependent on the type of facility.  Administrators in large hospitals tend to earn a higher salary than those at private practices or nursing care facilities. Facilities in large cities and metropolitan areas also pay a higher salary.

Healthcare administrators, while not “on call” in the same way as doctors, work long hours and must deal with problems regardless of when they occur. Thus, their salary reflects the higher level of responsibility.

Significant job growth is likely to occur in long-term and managed care facilities as the population grows older. Regardless of the setting, healthcare administrators in Virginia will be well-compensated for professionalism, leadership, communication skills and critical thinking in a fast-changing healthcare climate.
