OSF HealthCare is proud to announce one of its leading experts on the transformation to value-based health care has been named CEO of its Central Region.
Robert Sehring assumed the leadership position March 9. Sehring, from Dunlap, IL, has spent his entire career in health care, joining OSF HealthCare in 2002, most recently as Chief Ministry Services Officer where he was responsible for overseeing the operations of a number of system-wide shared services.
Sehring has played an integral role as OSF HealthCare continues to be a leader in the evolution of health care. He has been responsible for the Ministry’s accountable care relationships, including its status as a Pioneer Accountable Care Organization.
OSF HealthCare moved to a regional leadership structure to better meet the health goals for the communities it serves. Regional CEOs are responsible for ensuring services are accessible and organized to best meet the unique needs of patients.
“As our health system continues to grow and innovate, a regional leadership structure allows us to approach the communities we serve in a coordinated and efficient manner,” said Kevin Schoeplein, OSF Healthcare System CEO. “It’s about looking out for the total health and well-being of our communities, and collaborating with other providers and community services to provide whatever the people in our regions need.”
