Patient & Donor Stories
When passionate donors like William and Carol Parrillo choose to give an extraordinary gift, they not only help turn dreams into reality, but also inspire others to put their stamp on the future and allow the dream to thrive.
Center for Health Named to Reflect Extraordinary Gift
To acknowledge the Parrillos’ generosity, the Center for Health at York Street and Roosevelt Road was renamed the Elmhurst Memorial Center for Health/
William and Carol Parrillo Building, where more than 3,500 visitors pass through its doors every day.
“Carol and I are pleased to leave a legacy for our children and grandchildren, and what better way than to support Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare, which will continue to serve the community for decades to come,” says William Parrillo, who is chairman and president of Safeway Insurance Company, headquartered in Westmont.
The Elmhurst Memorial Center for Health/William and Carol Parrillo Building anchors the east side of the campus and houses outpatient services and physician offices. The new Hospital occupies the central area of the campus along with a medical office building to the west. Interior corridors connect all of the buildings and allow patients to move easily throughout the campus for office visits, diagnostic tests and inpatient care.
“Gifts like the Parrillos’ make a world-class healthcare facility possible,” says Mary Ann Malloy, M.D., capital campaign co-chair, Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation Trustee and member of the Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Medical Staff. “It is vision like theirs that inspires others to help us advance the heart and science of healthcare.”
