Todd Schonherz was named COO of American Oncology Network in 2017.
FORT MYERS — American Oncology Network, an alliance of cancer physicians and seasoned health care leaders in community oncology, promoted COO Todd Schonherz to president.
Schonherz will remain COO as well, and will focus on the overall long-term strategic direction and success of the organization in the new role, according to a statement. He was named COO in 2017, and will also remain responsible for overseeing AON’s day-to-day operations, including practice operations, information technology, care management, oversight of central ancillaries and research and marketing.
The promotion comes during a growth surge for the firm: within the past 18 months, the AON network has expanded to include nearly 75 physicians and over 30 nurse practitioners in 11 states. “We have made great strides in a very short time,” Schonherz says in the statement. “Through access to centralized services such as revenue cycle management, drug purchasing, payer contracting and IT, as well as enhanced services such as pathology and oral-oncolytic pharmacy, AON practices have realized significant results in increased productivity and improved operations.”
American Oncology Network was founded in Fort Myers in 2018.
