WINFIELD, Ill., January 16, 2007 — Dr. Joseph W. Boyle has been promoted to the position of medical director of the Emergency Department at Central DuPage Hospital (CDH).

“The Emergency Department is one of the front doors to our hospital,” said Deb O’Donnell, RN, MSN, chief nursing officer. “Dr. Boyle and his team make sure that each patient that enters our doors is cared for properly and respectfully. If the patient is admitted, he makes sure the transition to inpatient care is smooth for the patient, their family members and their care team. I am confident Dr. Boyle and his team will continue the tradition of excellent care that our ED has always provided.”

That makes an awesome combination for patient care,” said Dr. Boyle. “With cutting edge technology like a paperless charting system and access to a new 64-slice Cat Scanner, we have become a destination where the best emergency physicians are eager to work. This means our patients have the benefit of the best physicians and latest technology right here in the western suburbs. I’m thrilled to be a part of that.”
