Ann Schumacher is president of CHI Health Mercy in Council Bluffs and Immanuel Hospital in Omaha. Ann started working at Mercy in 1991 and returned most recently to become the president of Mercy.
Ann decided to go into healthcare because she loves the idea of truly being able to make a difference in the lives of others. She loves the mix of science and caring that makes up good healthcare.
The most rewarding thing about working at Mercy “is our faith-based mission makes us different and is very special to me. I believe in caring for the body, mind and spirit and see our team each and every day go above and beyond to improve the health of those we serve and our community. I love serving with the Mercy team.
“My favorite medical acronym is not necessarily a medical one, but I love the acronym ASAP! I tend to be urgent and love to see progress on important goals and initiatives,” she added.
Ann was a farm girl from southwest Minnesota and grew up in a large family. Her husband, Mark, and she have four grown daughters and one grandson, Charlie, who is the love of their lives!
Ann is passionate about her volunteer work and serves on many local boards. She is an avid reader and loves just about any activity while spending time with her family.
