Did You Miss the Luncheon on May 17th?
We had an excellent response to our luncheon on May 17th. Jennifer Westfall, VP, Marketing & Product Development, St Francis Hospital; Regional Executive Director, Franciscan St. Francis Health Network, was joined by Vicki Perry, President & CEO, Advantage Health Solutions, and Peggy Homeier, Director of Operations, Franciscan St. Francis Health Network, to give their perspectives on how the business of healthcare is changing. They have very generously allowed their presentations to be posted to the EWHC website. You’ll need to log-in as a member to view them.

EWHC Lynne O’Day Scholarship
In 2011, EWHC established, in partnership with Marian University, a scholarship to honor the memory of Lynne O’Day. Lynne was an active supporter, fundraiser, and board member of EWHC for many years. She had an influence on many female leaders in our local healthcare community via her role with St. Vincent and various community healthcare organizations, sitting on the Board of Directors for the Gennesaret Free Clinics, St. Elizabeth/Coleman, Marquette Manor, the VNA, Ovar’Coming Together, and numerous other women focused health care organizations.
Approximately two years ago, Lynne was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and died shortly thereafter, in August of 2010. Prior to Lynne's death, the EWHC board was considering establishing a scholarship to assist the development of young, female professionals who are pursuing a career in healthcare leadership. After Lynne's death the group posthumously named the scholarship in Lynne's honor and aligned the goals with her dedication and commitment to Marian University where she received her Bachelor of Science degree in nursing and served on the university’s Board of Trustees from 1989 to 2006.
Our goal is to raise $25,000 which will be matched by an anonymous donor through Marian University. To date we have raised $8,850. Please consider helping to establish this important scholarship. For details, please visit our website.
