ROPH Welcomes New Member to Board of Directors

(June 27, 2017) Rush Oak Park Hospital recently added Judge Cheyrl Ingram to its Board of Directors. Ingram’s addition puts the board total at seven voting members.

A presiding judge in the Fourth Municipal District of Cook County since December 1994, Ingram was elected to the Circuit Court County-wide in 1992 and retained in 1998, 2004, 2010 and 2016. During every election cycle and prior to joining the bench, she has either been rated "Qualified" or "Recommended" by every Bar association as well as by the Judicial Performance Committee and the Illinois Committee for Honest Government.

A resident of Broadview, Ingram says she was first drawn to the hospital for the medical expertise it provides.

“My family and I have always been pleased with the services we have received from the Rush family,” she says. “Having had personal involvement with the hospital assured me that this was the type of organization that I wanted to help grow.”

Although she feels a little late to the party as it relates to Rush Oak Park Hospital’s ongoing development and strong relationship with the community, Ingram says seeing and hearing about all the new innovative projects that are planned, “makes me feel like a new mother about to nurture a child through life. I hope to be able to take my medical, life and career experiences and contribute my opinions to assist Rush Oak Park Hospital in reaching its goals.

“I want to assure that every family who enters the hospital feels that all their needs are met,” she adds. “It’s during these times that people are at their lowest and they should feel lifted up.”

“We’re pleased to have Judge Cheyrl Ingram by our side as we continue to provide expert and compassionate health care for the community,” says Bruce Elegant, president and CEO of the hospital.
