Michael Peregrine was quoted on February 16 in Modern Healthcare in an article regarding the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) report on nonprofit hospital executive pay and community benefits. The IRS found that executive pay at nonprofit hospitals is uneven compared to the community benefits provided by nonprofit hospitals. Mr. Peregrine noted that "the reports release amid public outcry over payouts to executives at failed corporations could put not-for-profit hospitals on the defensive." He added that the unfortunate timing may overshadow positive survey results that show hospitals largely comply with regulations, "The report makes it clear that hospitals have been playing by the rules," Mr. Peregrine noted. Mr. Peregrine provided similar comments regarding the IRS report to BNA's Health Care Reporter and EO Tax Today.
