Which cancer centers offer the most salary?
Orlando Health Health Center, a health care provider with facilities in Orlando, Fla., and other areas in central Florida, is the largest gynecological center in the United States.
It has the largest number of cancer patients in the state and a staff of about 1,000.
A large majority of patients come from families with incomes between $75,000 and $200,000 a year, according to the National Cancer Institute.
The average annual salary for a resident of Orlando Health Center is $130,711.
Other centers include Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston.
The National Cancer Center in Bethesda, Md., also offers cancer care, but its median salary is $108,890.
All told, about 11 percent of Florida residents are in the top 25 percent of incomes in the nation, according the Center for Health Economics and Policy.
Orlando Health Care Centers also offers primary care and preventive services, according its website.
In a statement to NBC News, Orlando Health’s chief medical officer, Dr. Karen Schoen, said she hoped the national spotlight on the center and the surrounding area would “provide more clarity” about the state’s health care system.
The center has faced some criticism for having a relatively low reimbursement rate for cancer care.
It’s about the same as what the state of Massachusetts pays for primary care.
The hospital is a private, for-profit hospital, but the majority of the work is performed by non-profit organizations.
Schoen said that because the center is for-profits, its patients often get to choose between paying the hospital for care or receiving less reimbursement for that care.
She said that, because of the reimbursement rate, patients who choose to receive less reimbursement can get a higher cost of care.
“We are proud of our efforts and our leadership to offer quality, affordable care to our patients,” Schoen wrote.
Orlando Medical Center, also a non-profits hospital, had about 1.4 million visits in 2014, about 7 percent of its total patient volume.
The annual fee for primary and preventive care was about $35,000, or $20,000 per day.
In 2014, the average cost per visit was about twice as much as the average Medicare bill for the same amount of time, according a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
The state pays about $11.50 per hour for primary-care services, but Orlando Health charges $11 an hour for preventive care.
This year, Orlando Medical has seen its patient population increase about 50 percent.
In 2015, Orlando had about 2,000 patients.
Schien said the increases were due to increased patients and the hospital’s increasing population.
The health center said the changes are a result of the Affordable Care Act, which provides insurance for the uninsured.
“This is just part of the ongoing work that we are doing to address our health care needs,” Schien wrote.
A spokeswoman for the state Department of Health said the average Medicaid reimbursement for the primary- and preventive-care programs at the Orlando Health Medical Center was about 1 percent of the cost.
“The majority of our patients are able to access care through a network of providers who are providing care on a fee-for-service basis, so they don’t pay for care themselves,” said Jennifer St. Clair, a spokeswoman for Health and Human Services.
She added that some Medicaid providers, such as Orlando Health, are “part of the same network.”
Orlando Health said it was not immediately available to comment on the report.
