Retiring UW Hospitals and Clinics head getting large severance package

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The former head of UW Hospitals and Clinics will get at least $1.3 million in severance pay when she retires from her job Monday.

The exit agreement between Donna Katen-Bahensky shows she will be paid her $853,000 salary for the next 18 months, plus an incentive bonus earned during the last fiscal year.

Her position was to be eliminated after the integration of the UW Hospital and its physicians group and the UW Medical Foundation.

Though it wasn’t for “cause,” her departure was involuntary, which makes the payout appropriate. She had come to Wisconsin from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics six years ago.
