The article discusses the changes in the organizational structure of the Loretto Hospital in Chicago, Illinois in February 2006. After the hospital became a not-for-profit community corporation, the board decreased in size and made the president of the medical staff and the CEO full voting members. An advisory council that was established soon after the hospital became an independent community institution started building bridges in the community and was a breeding ground for new board members.
