Carmen Velasquez, Executive Director of Alivio Medical Center, and a Health & Medicine Board Member, has been nominated by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to the
Cook County Health and Hospital Systems board, along with Dorene Wiese, President of American Indian Association of Illinois,  retiring Abbott Laboratories executive Edward Michael, and retiring Executive Director of the Community Renewal Society and community activist Rev. Calvin Morris.

While we will miss the insight, expertise and unique perspective of Dr. David Ansell, we applaud President Preckwinkle's choices and believe  that all four candidates will bring thoughtful and diligent oversight to the  Cook County Health and Hospitals System.
