“I am honored to join the Mercy ministry and I look forward to collaborating with the board, medical staff and Mercy associates to provide excellent care to the patients and families that we are so privileged to serve,” Ms. Schneider said in the statement.
Mercy has 320 staffed beds and a network of clinics.
Last year, Ms. Lyne secured the survival of the hospital, the birthplace of former Mayor Richard M. Daley, when she negotiated a merger with Trinity Health, one of the largest Catholic hospital networks in the nation. Novi, Mich.-based Trinity had 2012 revenue of $8.90 billion.
Prior to her role at the county health system, Ms. Schneider formed her own consultancy; was CEO of Timberline Knolls, a south suburban Lemont-based residential treatment center; and was president of Advocate Christ Medical Center and Hope Children's Hospital in Oak Lawn, the statement said.
Ms. Schneider, 56, has a bachelor of arts degree from Lewis University in Romeoville, where she teaches healthcare and business classes, as well as a master's of business administration from DePaul University.
