How Much Do Health Unit Coordinators Make?

Pay depends on what region of the country you are in. When I was a Health Unit Coordinator in Memphis, Tennessee more than 10 years ago, the starting base salary was under $10, but it did include shift and weekend differential. Where I am now in South Florida and with the years of experience that I have my starting salary was much higher.

A simple Google search reveals that the average Health Unit Coordinator salary on the low end is $23,000 and on the high end $29,000 per year.

If you are fresh off of the street with no medical background, but you do have computer and/or office skills than your pay will be totally different than someone who has experience as a Health Unit Coordinator who can also read EKG strips.

If you are in the market for a new job then I would suggest that you check out www.glassdoor.com, type in a hospital's name and see what current and past employees are saying about the salary there.
