To put a fine point on it, were it 1 that the 501a was some kind of completely separate organization, driven entirely by doctor salaries, and was essentially a private org, there would have been no need to SHOW the board, repeatedly, the salaries and perks, nor to show how there is one account that acts, IMO, as a slush fund. Even Ray Reynolds, a couple of years ago, had part of his salary spread out in two places, the second under an obscure category. But no, doctors are W-2 employees, with a 501a in the middle for the purpose of 1. shortfall money and 2 different tiered benefits.
Updating. When hub was on the hospital board, he received a copy of the 2015 budget. He still has it and I asked him, since this is open records, to see it. It's a pretty thick binder, and what's interesting is that the 501a category is PART OF THE BUDGET and includes a tab for each doctor.
