Wow! The article goes on to say:
The average salary of 2011 respondents is $98,702, compared to $83,675 in 2007 and $69,500 in the 2004 surveys, demonstrating the increasing maturity and value of the specialty.
I work in the field and according to this survey, 40% of the respondents are working in hospitals. I showed these to my colleagues and we laughed because such high salaries are not really seen in hospitals, but in the consulting world. Matter of fact, my recruiting friend tells me that most hospital jobs start in the 60's and peak in the high 90's, unless you're going for management positions.
