During that time, he led the organization through a cultural transformation that has achieved high standards of service excellence. He also is passionate about making Delnor a leader in our community for quality care.”
As president, Wright will be responsible for all aspects of the hospital in providing efficient and effective provision of quality patient care. Craig A.

Wright graduated with both a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics and a Master’s Degree in Business Administration cum laude from Loyola University of Chicago.

In addition, Wright has a long-standing commitment to the community through his involvement in the St. Charles Kiwanis Club, the Heartland Blood Bank, the American Cancer Society Regional Board, and the Board of Trustees at the Batavia Covenant Church.
“While these credentials are impressive, perhaps Tom’s most important qualifications are the exceptional leadership, caring and commitment he displays every day to the Delnor family and those we serve,” says Livermore. “The Board of Directors and I are confident Tom will bring the same passion and results-oriented leadership to his new position that he has to his other roles at Delnor over the years.”
“I am very grateful to Craig and the Board for this exciting opportunity,” says Wright. “Delnor is truly a special place.
