Alexian Brothers Honors State Representative Fred Crespo and Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod


Since opening earlier this year, the Alexian Brothers Women & Children’s Hospital has been met with enthusiasm by the community, area families and medical professionals across the Chicagoland area. Instrumental in making the $125 million specialty hospital a reality has been the advocacy of area elected officials and civic leaders, whose support for the new hospital on behalf of their constituents helped pave the way in bringing world-class pediatric care to Chicago’s Northwest suburbs.

On Friday, November 1, the Alexian Brothers Health System honored State Representative Fred Crespo (44th District) and Hoffman Estates Mayor Bill McLeod during a special ceremony which included the unveiling of a plaque by residents, hospital staff and former patients thanking Representative Crespo and Mayor McLeod for their unrelenting support of the Alexian Brothers Women & Children’s Hospital and recognizing the important roles they played in bringing the much needed facility to the northwest suburbs.

“We are here today to recognize the value of partnership. Mayor McLeod and Representative Crespo have been great partners with us for a long period of time,” stated Mark A. Frey, President and Chief Executive Officer of ABHS. “The prospect of putting this hospital together began many years ago. I don’t think we would have gotten this done without their support. We thank Mayor McLeod and Representative Crespo for leaving a legacy behind, a legacy that allows us to treat children in this community and exemplifies the true concept of partnership and community spirit.”

Located on the campus of St. Alexius Medical Center, the 126-bed, 210,000-square-foot, six-level women’s and children’s hospital features a Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with a full complement of pediatric sub-specialty physicians to care for the tiniest babies. The Center for Pediatric Brain, which brings together existing ABHS pediatric neurological programs in a convenient outpatient location, can also be found at the new hospital.

The plaque honoring Representative Crespo and Mayor McLeod will be on permanent display
on the second floor of the facility, which also features an eight-bed pediatric intensive care unit
and 20 large, private pediatric suites, each with furnishings that include a comfortable chair
and a sofa bed.
