Key strategies for hospital pension fund managers

Professor Hope Hetico

By Hope R. Hetico RN MHA

[Managing Editor]

Recently, Mr. John Andrews, Contributing Editor of the well known industry publication Healthcare Finance News in Chicago, caught up with our Publisher and Editor-in-Chief … Dave Marcinko.

He was asked the following questions which focused on best industry practices and looked at the overall pension situation for hospitals and health systems in the US.

Questions:

  • How prevalent are pensions for hospital workers and how does it compare to the economy at large?
  • Are more hospitals going to a 401(k) benefit system?
  • Is there someone within hospital HR managing the pension funds or do they typically contract with outside firms?
  • What are the key tenets to investing for a hospital pension fund? How much risk should be assumed compared to more conservative investments? How do you strike a balance between growth and capital preservation?
  • In general, how well do hospitals understand their fiduciary responsibilities? How involved should the Board of Directors be in the process?
  • Do you recommend a defined contribution and defined benefit plan? What are the pros and cons of each?
  • Are there certain industries that are more attractive than others for investment? Is it kosher for a healthcare pension fund to invest in healthcare-related interests?
  • and much more!

Assessment

Of course, any interview with David is a free-for-all with topics and discussions all over the place; so enjoy the [electronic] show.

INTERVIEW

Pension funds linger, even make comeback, among healthcare providers

“While not as prevalent as they once were, healthcare pension plans still represent a significant fiduciary obligation” – Dr. DE Marcinko, iMBA Inc., Atlanta, GA

It is part of what healthcare economist Dr. David Marcinko MBA calls “a sea change that has occurred over the past decade” in terms of pension displacement.

NOTE: This inteview was prompted by the release of our newest textbook: COMPREHENSIVE FINANCIAL PLANNING STRATEGIES FOR DOCTORS AND ADVISORS [Best Practices from Leading Consultants and Certified Medical Planners™].

It is the only multi-contributor major text that was written by doctors; for doctors and about doctors from a peer-reviewed and fiduciary perspective. It is already redacted in medical school libraries throughout the country.

  3. Pension Funds

    Public pension fund managers from California to New York are slashing investment predictions to their lowest levels since the 1980s, a shift that will mean greater hardships for employees and cash-strapped governments as Americans age.

  5. Large pension fund files plan to cut retiree benefits under new law

    Nearly 300,000 former truckers and their families would suffer significant losses under a proposal that uses a controversial new law to cut once sacrosanct pension benefits.

    UPDATE:

    The federal budget deal could speed the long, lingering death of old-fashioned defined-benefit pension plans, in which employers reward years of service by providing a guaranteed stream of income in retirement.

    Are healthcare worker pensions next?
