Your train of thinking is probably also what the hiring manager or HR is thinking. If all your experience is on the physician side, it would be difficult to argue that ten years of experience applies to the work you'll be doing there--that is, assuming that all of your coding will be facility coding.
Once you're in the door, look into ways you can boost your pay. These may include getting additional training and education in hospital-specific areas. Regardless, I'm certain there are opportunities there to grow your salary; you just have to make the attempt at learning those routes.
I wish you luck and congrats on your new position.
