Stroger hospital board list

From the Chicago Tribune 'Clout Street' blog:

Posted by Hal Dardick at 6:00 a.m.

Cook County Board President Todd Stroger has two weeks to name directors to a new, independent board to oversee the county's vast Bureau of Health Services, which critics contend is a patronage-laden fiefdom controlled by 8th Ward Democrats.

A nominating committee gave him a list of 20 names Monday, and Stroger must either select nine directors from that list or reject them all. Commissioner Larry Suffredin (D-Evanston) drafted that requirement in return for backing the 1 percentage point county sales tax increase that takes effect July 1.

Suffredin and Civic Federation President Laurence Msall both said they are pleased with the lack of politics involved in selecting the 20 candidates presented to Stroger. Once they are appointed, county commissioners will have another two weeks to vote on whether to approve them.

Once the board is in place, the directors must conduct a nationwide search for a new chief of the Bureau of Health Services.

Here's the list:

*Dr. David Ansell, vice president and chief medical officer at Rush University Medical Center

*Fernando Grillo, former secretary of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation

*Warren Batts, retired Premark International CEO

*Dr. Carl Bell, president and CEO of Community Mental Health Council & Foundation Inc.

*Norman Bobins, chairman emeritus of LaSalle Bank Corp.

*Daniel Cantrell, who is on the staff of U.S. Rep. Danny Davis (D-Ill.)

*David Carvalho, deputy director of the Illinois Dept. of Public Health

*Margaret Davis, executive director of the Healthcare Consortium of Illinois

*Dr. Joseph Flaherty, dean of the College of Medicine at University of Illinois-Chicago

*Quin Golden, former chief of staff of the Illinois Dept. of Public Health

*Benn Greenspan of the School of Public Health at UIC

*Barbara Hillman, attorney

*Lester Knight, a founding partner at RoundTable Healthcare Partners

*Dr. Carol Lopez, president of the Chicago Institute of Medicine

*Sister Sheila Lyne, president and CEO of Mercy Hospital and Medical Center

*Dr. Luis Munoz, president of WorkCare Medical Center

*Heather O’Donnell, health policy director at Center for Tax and Budget Accountability

*Jorge Ramirez, secretary-treasurer of the Chicago Federation of Labor

*James Stukel, former president of University of Illinois

*Andrea Zopp, executive vice president and chief human resources officer at Exelon Corp.
