Our community is forever grateful for the leadership of Pam Davis and all that she has accomplished for healthcare. Over the years, Pam has shared her fun-loving spirit while keeping Edward Hospital moving forward to find its place as a nationally-known healthcare provider. No stranger to local awards, Davis also was recognized as the American Legion Post 43 Citizen of the Year in 2012. Last spring, she received the 2016 Naperville Jaycees Charles Busche Lifetime Achievement Award.
Above/ During the City Council meeting, elected officials who serve in Springfield noted that in addition to the City, the State of Illinois will mark Davis’ retirement, too.
“You transformed Edward Hospital from a small hometown hospital to truly an institution of world-class health care that’s one of the gems within Naperville,” state Rep. Grant Wehrli of Naperville said when he and Sen. Mike Connelly joined the well-wishers for photos. “You wore a wire that took down Gov. Blagojevich. You’re a hero to me. You’re a hero to the city.”
Thanks, Pam Davis, for your award-winning dedicated service. Your commitment has created jobs and innovative healthcare. Since the merger of Edward Hospital and Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare in 2013, your efforts have helped build one of the larger integrated health systems in Illinois.
Cheers to good health and a happy retirement!
