Retired anesthesiologist John Scheub, MD, has accepted a position on the FHN Board of Directors.

Dr. Scheub retired from Rockford Anesthesiologists Associated in 2007; as part of RAA, he cared for patients at FHN for at least 11 years. He is on the faculty of the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford, where he teaches second-year medical students clinical and communication skills. "My goal is to bring an independent physician's perspective to the board," Scheub says. "FHN has a long tradition of physician leadership – that is important to the organization, and it is important to me." He serves on a number of committees for the FHN Board: Executive; Strategic Planning; Quality / Safety; and Audit / Compliance.

"FHN has a real connection to our rural patients," Scheub says. "I appreciate that – I grew up on a farm and still consider my family 'farm people.'"

Dr. Scheub lives in Rockford with his wife of 48 years. They have three children, all of whom have chosen careers in healthcare. Dr. Scheub also serves on the SwedishAmerican Health System Board of Directors and is a proud member of the Blackhawk Region BMW Motorcycle Association.
