In his teens, after a serious bout with pneumonia, he was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. At the time of his diagnosis, it was known to be a lethal disease. As a result of his diagnosis, he spent a great deal of his youth around physicians and hospitals. These interactions inspired him to want to be a physician. He graduated from the University of Akron with a degree in biology in 1976 and continued his studies at the university, completing a master's degree in biology.
During this time, he met Mary Forbis, and they were married in 1980. John adopted her children, Heath and Crystal.
Following completion of his master's degree, he applied to medical school but was not accepted. He pursued a Ph.D. in molecular biology at Kent State University. After five years of applying to multiple medical schools, he was accepted at the former Medical College of Ohio, now part of the University of Toledo.
While at MCO, he distinguished himself as an outstanding student. He was one of the top six students inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honorary society. He completed his residency in pediatrics at MCO and was appointed chief pediatric resident.
After his training, he accepted a position at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center as a hospitalist and pediatric intensivist. He advanced rapidly through the ranks of the medical staff and was appointed chair of the department of pediatrics within two years.
He became director of the Pediatric Student Program at MCO and in 1997 was awarded the Dean's Award for Teaching Excellence and in 1998, was appointed the first Endowed Chair of Pediatrics at the Medical College. He was most proud of the recognition he received from his students. The national Pediatric Housestaff Association awarded him Teacher of the Year four times and he was given an honorary lifetime achievement award in 2003.
Dr. Schaeufele was involved in the formation of Mercy Children's Hospital in 1998 and was the first clinical chair of the hospital. He assumed the role of vice president of medical affairs and chief administrative officer in 2006. One year later, he was promoted to president and CEO.
He was a pioneer in evidence-based medicine, creating a clinical pathway for treatment of children with asthma. He was instrumental in bringing the area's first electronic medical record to Mercy. He received the organizations' Excellence in Mission award in 2004. He established the department of child advocacy and worked for public smoking restrictions, legislation for bicycle helmet requirements, access to healthcare for all children and other initiatives that advanced the health and safety of children.
