Michael Schroyer Named President of Baptist Health Floyd

Michael Schroyer, a registered nurse turned pioneering hospital administrator has been named president at Baptist Health Floyd. The Noblesville, Indiana resident was chosen following a nationwide search by a community-based committee. He was formerly president for St. Vincent Anderson Northeast Region. The Illinois native had worked with the St. Vincent Health system since 2007, starting as chief nursing officer and chief operating officer for its Heart Center of Indiana.

“Mike’s experience in providing exceptional heart care, in physician development and recruitment and knack for growing medical services make him a great fit for Baptist Health Floyd,” said Diane Murphy, hospital board chair. “We look forward to working with him to further cement Baptist Health Floyd’s place as Southern Indiana’s preferred hospital.”

Schroyer said the choice to take the reins at Baptist Health Floyd was a natural one. “They have the kind of atmosphere that I like to be in – it’s a faith-based organization which is what I prefer. Baptist Health Floyd has much to offer and it’s a hidden gem. There is a lot of opportunity with the entire team there to grow what they’re doing and show the community what we can do in achieving great outcomes for our patients.”

His management style is grounded in servant leadership, with an emphasis on teamwork and collaboration. “As a clinician, it helps me to see both the clinical and administrative worlds, and really helps with physician relations,” he added. “We need to make sure we are taking great care of our patients – top-notch care – and that we do it together as a team.”

WittKieffer’s Rachel Polhemus, Jason Petros and Andrew Trechsel led this search.
