St. Vincent's HealthCare names new chief operating officer

By Florida Times-Union

Tom VanOsdol has been named as chief operating officer of clinically integrated systems of care for St. Vincent’s HealthCare in Northeast Florida.

VanOsdol is currently president of the Northeast Region of St. Vincent, in the Ascension Indiana Ministry Market. That region includes three hospitals in central Indiana. St. Vincent’s HealthCare is a member of Ascension, the nation’s largest Catholic and nonprofit health system, with about 150,000 employees serving in 129 acute care hospitals.

VanOsdol began his Ascension career in 1990 as a speech pathologist at the Ascension hospital in Anderson, Ind. He later became vice president of operations in Anderson and in 2008 became regional president.

Although VanOsdol’s position is being characterized as a new position, St. Vincent’s HealthCare previously had a chief operating officer, Donnie Romine, who had served as interim CEO of St. Vincent’s HealthCare from March, when Moody Chisholm stepped down as CEO, through August, when Mike Schatzlein was hired to serve as CEO and president of St. Vincent’s HealthCare. Romine is no longer with St. Vincent’s HealthCare.

VanOsdol will assume his new duties at St. Vincent’s HealthCare on Dec. 14 and will have an office in the administrative suite at St. Vincent’s Medical Center Riverside.

St. Vincent’s HealthCare includes St. Vincent’s Riverside, St. Vincent’s Southside, St. Vincent’s Clay County, St. Catherine Labouré Manor, St. Vincent’s Primary Care, Consolidated Laboratories, St. Vincent’s Ambulance Service, Seton Pharmacies and Consolidated Pharmacies.
