Health Facilities Management magazine has published results of its 2012 salary survey done in conjunction with the American Society for Healthcare Engineering and the Association for the Healthcare Environment. Here are average salaries for those with primary responsibilities within facilities management for a general acute-care hospital:

  • Facilities management/operations/engineering: $94,890
  • Biomedical/clinical engineering: $81,725
  • Construction & projects: $103,053
  • Environmental services/housekeeping: $67,550
  • Maintenance: $71,414
  • Safety: $78,166
  • Support services: $124,284

More detail is provided for other types of hospitals and healthcare facilities, for hospitals by bed size range, by facility square footage categories, by geographic region, by years of management experience, and by professional certification status.

Among the top ten trends identified by the survey were these:

  • The top tier of salaries are expanding
  • Bonuses have grown
  • Organizations plan to do more with less
  • Employee costs are rising and key benefits are shrinking
  • Graying of management will soon leave a void
