Pay by Experience Level for Health Manager

Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.


Experience does not seem to be a strong driver of pay increase in this role. Those in the early stages of their career can expect to make around $48K; however, individuals with five to 10 years of experience bring in $60K on average — a distinctly larger sum. Health Managers see a median salary of $62K after reaching one to two decades on the job. In the end, more experience does seem to mean larger paychecks; seasoned Health Managers with more than 20 years of experience earn a predictably higher median salary of $64K.
