The Scheurer Board of Trustees is proud to announce the selection of Ross Ramsey, MD as the next President & CEO of Scheurer Health. Dr. Ramsey has been a practicing physician with Scheurer Health since 2012 and Vice President of Quality & Medical Affairs for the last four years.

Scheurer Board Chairperson, Brian Keim states, “We are very pleased to introduce Dr. Ross Ramsey as Scheurer Health's new President & CEO. He is bright, innovative, and highly respected in his field. Dr. Ramsey is also a Huron County native who takes great pride in serving the people around him. There is a growing trend for practicing physicians to step into top executive roles because of the technical nature of healthcare and the unique understanding of complex systems that a physician can offer. Dr. Ramsey has been preparing himself for this kind of role for several years and we feel extremely fortunate that he will take that step with Scheurer.”
