On Thursday the UC Regents Committee on Compensation approved compensations and salary adjustments for several high-level UC employees, including Ann Madden Rice, CEO of UC Davis Medical Center and Claire Pomeroy, vice chancellor for human health sciences at UC Davis.
According to a report from the Committee on Compensation, Rice’s raise of nearly $259,000 was in response to a recent recruitment effort by another competing academic medical center. The raise brings her total compensation to $960,000 a year but is contingent upon Rice withdrawing her application from the other hospital.
Pomeroy, who also serves as dean of the School of Medicine at UC Davis Medical Center, was given a raise of nearly $27,000, bringing her compensation to $664,275. An increase of federal funding through three major grants, as well as a rise in the UC Davis School of Medicine’s ranking to 37th in a field of 134 medical schools, served as justification for her raise, according to the report.
Funding for Rice’s and Pomeroy’s raises comes from hospital fees, not the state general fund.
The committee further approved compensation for medical executives at UC Irvine, UCLA, UC San Francisco and managers of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Also approved were bonuses for Marie Berggren, chief investment officer for the University of California and Jack Stobo, senior vice president for health sciences and services at the University of California, both of which will not be paid for using public funds.
The only salary approved by the committee that will be funded by the state government was the appointment of UC Berkeley professor Barbara Allen-Diaz to the position of UC vice president of agriculture and natural resources.
