Chicago Tribune, April 28, 2008
After just 15 months as president and chief executive of Illinois-based Loyola University Health System, Paul Whelton, MD, is moving to re-energize its major teaching hospital complex. Whelton next step is $1 billion strategic plan to bolster Loyola's teaching, research and clinical programs. The 10-year plan includes money to convert the main hospital to all private rooms as well as additional resources to bolster its network of suburban outpatient medical-care sites and $100 million for a research facility to retain and attract top-notch medical researchers.
