Schoeplein started his career as assistant administrator at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center in Peoria in 1978 and worked in various positions before becoming CEO in 2011. He was first appointed to an IHA board position in 2014.
The IHA has several offices in Illinois, as well as one in Washington, D.C., and is dedicated to making quality health care available to all Illinois residents at an affordable cost.
