A dialysis center manager oversees and directs the services of a facility that provides dialysis for patients with kidney problems. In many cases, dialysis center managers are nurses experienced in dialysis treatment and technologies. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimated wages for dialysis center managers under the occupational title of medical and health services managers in the outpatient care industry in May 2010.
Among the 14,780 medical and health services managers in the outpatient care industry, annual median wages were $77,180. Between 2008 and 2018, employment is expected to increase 38.6 percent for this industry and 16.8 percent for management and related occupations in health care, according to the Bureau.
The 25th percentile of medical and health services managers in the outpatient care industry earned median wages of $60,640 per year and the 75th percentile earned $102,230. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $47,730 and the highest 10 percent earned more than $143,270.
Among employers in the outpatient care centers industry that pay hourly wages, median hourly wages were $37.10. The 25th percentile earned $25.15 per hour and the 75th percentile earned $49.15. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $22.95 per hour and the highest 10 percent earned more than $68.88.
Among all medical and health services managers – which included dialysis center managers – annual median wages were $84,270. These professionals work in other industries such as hospitals, nursing care facilities, home healthcare facilities and physicians' offices. Many of these industries paid higher wages than the outpatient care industry, which can be attributed to factors such as responsibilities of the job and the educational and licensing requirements for medical and health services managers in other industries.
