ELMHURST – The Elmhurst Memorial Hospital Foundation has established the Mary Ann Malloy, MD Career Enrichment Fund in recognition of Dr. Malloy’s more than 30 years as a member of the Foundation Board of Trustees and distinguished career as an internal medicine physician with Elmhurst Clinic.

“We are pleased to honor Dr. Malloy for all that she has done to engage the community in support of the hospital,” said Ken Wegner, board chair of the EMH Foundation. “The endowment fund combines Dr. Malloy’s two passions – cardiac care and continuing education. The fund will provide learning and enrichment opportunities in the areas of cardiology or cardiac surgery for Elmhurst Hospital and Elmhurst Clinic employees.”

Dr. Malloy, a Foundation Trustee for 31 years, served as vice-chair of the Board, was the founding chairman of the Special Event Committee (now the Autumn Affair gala) and co-chaired the Capital Campaign for the new Main Hospital building project. She has been a member of the hospital’s medical staff since 1972, serving on several committees and holding leadership positions.

Dr. Malloy previously served as president of the American Heart Association in Chicago and was the AHA’s first committee chairman for Women and Heart Disease.
