In an article published last month, Billian’s HealthDATA noted a 37% increase in executive moves during the first six months of 2014 compared to the same period in 2013. These moves included CEOs, COOs, CFOs, CMOs, CNOs, VPs and Director-level positions.

To help determine how hospitals fill their new CXO slots, Billian’s teamed up with Porter Research to analyze trends found in a sample of 384 executive changes. Some of their findings include the following:

● 60% of hospital placements involved hiring an outside candidate
● 58% of new CEO hires were “stolen” from other hospitals
● 27% of new COO hires were “stolen” from other hospitals
● 44% of internal CEO promotions came from the COO position
● 17% of new COO positions were promotions from the CNO position

Also available at Billian’s website are a series of “Top 10” lists that you’ll find informative, such as:

● Largest hospital acquisitions ranked by bed size
● Top physician groups by number of MDs
● Top hospitals by net patient revenue
