He joined the board at a time when the hospital, located in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, a largely Puerto Rican community, was in danger of closing its doors and needed new leadership. He played a critical role in the search process for a new CEO, and also was instrumental in connecting the community with services and resources available through the hospital. Listen to Ocasio talk about how the hospital is helping to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood. Read his story here.
