Illinois Medical District (IMD) commissioners have named Allyson J. Hansen as executive director.
Hansen developed expertise in planning and administering medical facilities in a quarter-century career at University of Chicago Medicine, Trinity Health System, University of Illinois Health, and Advocate Health Care. Since 2020, she had been managing partner of the Red Penny Group, advising large healthcare systems, medical groups, and investors on growth, integration, operations, and strategic plans.
“Leading a modern medical campus in a historic 19th century urban neighborhood is a tremendous responsibility,” Hansen said. “My career has been focused on growing Chicago’s healthcare ecosystem to provide convenient high quality care.”
