Pay by Experience Level for Health Manager

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


Health Managers with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. 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. Individuals who report more than two decades of experience seem to make only slightly more than folks in the 10-to-20 year range; the more senior group sees median earnings in the comparatively modest ballpark of $64K.
