CHARLOTTE, (AP) — Most of North Carolina's hospitals spend less than 3 percent of their total budgets on charity care at the same time profits and pay for their top executives are increasing.

A series of stories in The Charlotte Observer and The News & Observer of Raleigh finds North Carolina has no rules on how much charity care a nonprofit hospital must provide. There also are no rules limiting how much executives can be paid or how much money a nonprofit a hospital can make.
The newspapers report 25 nonprofit hospital executives made total compensation exceeding $1 million in 2010 or 2011.
But not all hospitals are doing well. Many that pay the least for charity care also make little profits because they are in rural areas.
