Len Wilk, President and Chief Executive Officer of St. Alexius Medical Center, summed up the expected impact of the new hospital, telling guests at the ribbon-cutting event: "I look out at this building, and I see incredible carpeting and wall covering and a beautiful building. But I also think of literally the hundreds of thousands of people who will be served in this building over its lifetime. This building will have a huge impact on the community, and I personally am very proud of being associated with it."Before the ribbon-cutting event, Most Reverend George J. Rassas, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Chicago, blessed and dedicated the new hospital. He was representing Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago, who was in Rome following the election of Pope Francis I. ABHS announced that Cardinal George plans to bless the new hospital and its staff during a visit on April 29.
