City notes: St. Vincent’s CEO stepping down, reportedly taking job in Nashville

As reported in the Financial News & Daily Record

St. Vincent’s HealthCare President and CEO Dr. Mike Schatzlein is stepping down Dec. 31. Chief Operating Officer Tom VanOsdol will serve as interim CEO.

Schatzlein also will leave his roles as senior vice president for Ascension Healthcare and group ministry market executive for the Ascension Indiana and Tennessee markets, according to a news release from St. Vincent's.

From June 2010-July 2015, he served as president and CEO at St. Thomas Health in Nashville.

A hospital spokesman said he could not provide more information.

According to the website for The Tennesseean newspaper in Nashville, Schatzlein will “concentrate on” the Center for Medical Interoperability, of which he is chair.

The nonprofit’s website says, “We aim to improve real-time information flow and make technology function seamlessly in the background so we can achieve the best possible outcomes for patients.”

In Fort Wayne, Ind., Schatzlein was a cardiothoracic and vascular surgeon from 1980-84.

VanOsdol joined the hospital in December after serving as president of St. Vincent Anderson Regional Hospital in Anderson, Ind. He began his career as a speech language pathologist in 1988 at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Marion, Ind.
