The hospital CEO community in Illinois is a tight group, and we lost one of our own this week with the death of Harrisburg Medical Center CEO Vincent Ashley.
I chaired a meeting in Sprinfield last week that Vince attended. His community and his organization are still recovering from a tornado earlier this year that forced a closure of a large part of the hospital.
Vince’s wife was with him on his motorcycle and is in critical condition in Evansville, Indiana. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Ashley family and the Harrisburg community.
