MAYWOOD, IL – Amy G. Day, a philanthropy executive who has extensive experience in healthcare, has joined Loyola Medicine as vice president for development. Day will lead a newly integrated development team that will raise funds for both Loyola University Health System (LUHS) and the Loyola University Chicago Health Sciences Division.
