Form 990 is an annual information return that federally tax-exempt organizations must file with the IRS. It provides information on our mission, programs and finances, and includes details of executive compensation. Certain business relationships among officers, directors, key employees and their family members also are detailed in this filing.
As part of our commitment to organizational transparency, UPMC again has filed a group, or consolidated, IRS Form 990 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018. This approach is designed to improve the public’s understanding of UPMC’s operations and the relationship among our various entities. Per IRS requirements, executive compensation is reported based on Calendar Year 2017 in the Fiscal Year 2018 return. We also have filed a separate return for the parent organization, UPMC. (Please see UPMC’s most recent audited consolidated financial statements for more details.)
Our filing shows that UPMC Chief Executive Officer and President Jeffrey A. Romoff received $8.5 million in total compensation in Calendar Year 2017. Other executives’ compensation for Calendar Year 2017 is also reported in the Fiscal Year 2018 IRS Form 990.
Under the guidance of the UPMC Board of Directors and the leadership of Mr. Romoff and his executive team, UPMC has grown to a $20 billion integrated global health enterprise with 87,000 employees, more than 40 hospitals, 700 outpatient sites and doctors’ offices, a 3.5-million-member health insurance division – the largest medical insurer in western Pennsylvania - and innovation, commercial and international ventures.
