NORTHFIELD, OH (WOIO) - State payroll records released today show local psychiatrist Zinovi Goubar made $590,005 last year, and $357K of that was overtime.
As a point of reference, Governor John Kasich's salary in 2017 totaled $148,000.
Goubar works at Northcoast Behavioral Healthcare, a state psychiatric hospital in Northfield.
He has been the state's highest-paid employee since at least 2009, when he earned $308,617.
Sixteen of the 20 highest paid Ohio employees are psychiatrists.
The Columbus Dispatch reports the records don't include state colleges or universities, or employees of JobsOhio -- the state's privatized economic development agency.
Typically, state psychiatrists are in a favorable position to make lucrative incomes due to a low supply of doctors attempting to address an ever-increasing mental health care demand.
