“The large number of physicians on our medical staff who made this elite list is a testament to the quality of care our Cancer Institute physicians provide each and every day,” said Kenneth W. Lukhard, president, Advocate Christ Medical Center. “The work all of our physicians and care givers do each day to ensure our patients receive the very best in clinical quality, patient safety and compassionate care is evident in their amazing passion for excellence and commitment to our ministry of healing.”
