Re: histotech/med tech issue


Many hospitals in the Chicago area have placed their histotechs in the same
pay grade as the med techs.  There is one hospital I know of that has the
histotechs in a pay grade higher than the med techs.   Sometimes depending
on demand and shortages salaries change and the med techs could be making
the same or less than the histotechs.  Your human resources department will
help in this situaition.

We are in the processing of looking for another histotech.  We are also in
the process of raising our hourly rate.  The question is,  as many of you
have raised your histotech hourly rates has your lab also raised the med
tech range accordingly to keep the same difference?  What is the percent
difference between your histotechs and med techs?  My manager is concerned
as to what to do with the med tech range as the histotechs move up.

While we can refer to the latest salary survey in Laboratory Medicine,
things are changing so quickly with the histotech salary issue that we
appreciate as current  information as possible.  For those of you in the
midwest, if you would also share your actual hourly rate range as well,
would be helpful.
