The McNichols Family
"We have supported the mission of the Sisters since before Resurrection Medical Center was built almost 60 years ago," said Marilyn McNichols, referring to herself and her husband, Austin, who passed away in 2008. "We have always respected their commitment to bringing quality healthcare to the community."
Austin McNichols devoted countless volunteer hours and gave many generous contributions to ensure the success and growth of the Sisters' mission. Now the next generation of the McNichols family is carrying on the legacy of supporting Catholic healthcare in Chicago.
Jim McNichols and his sister Susie McNichols Cassidy are both members of the Resurrection Development Foundation Board of Directors. Jim's family made a pledge toward the newly opened Northwest Wing of Resurrection Medical Center.
"I continue my involvement because of how impressed I am with the leadership of the organization and the mission the System serves," Jim said. "Resurrection has a wonderful story to tell in terms of the innovative healthcare it delivers."
Susie works on behalf of Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center and helps to plan the annual Monarch Ball. "I love planning the benefits that help raise significant funds for programs that make a big difference in patients' lives," Susie said. "It's fun to work alongside donors who knew my father and who share their memories of him."
The legacy of donors like the McNichols family mirrors the legacy of the Sisters, which has been firmly rooted in the communities they have served for more than 100 years.
