Medical College of Wisconsin, Froedtert Hospital Name Alice Archabal as Chief Development Officer, Vice President of Development

Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) have jointly named Alice Archabal as Chief Development Officer and Vice President of Development for both organizations. Archabal is currently Senior Vice President/Chief Operating Officer for Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Foundation

Archabal will assume her new position on July 29, 2013. She will report to both John R. Raymond, Sr., MD, President and CEO of the Medical College of Wisconsin, and Catherine Jacobson, President and CEO of Froedtert Health. Archabal will provide leadership for the Froedtert Hospital Foundation and for MCW’s Development and Alumni Relations offices. At MCW, she is succeeding James Heald, who is retiring after 20 years as Vice President for Institutional Advancement. Nora Sale, Vice President and Executive Director of the Froedtert Hospital Foundation, will report to Archabal.

“Alice Archabal emerged as the top candidate for this newly created joint position after a thorough national search,” said Jacobson. “Top development talent nationwide expressed interest in joining both Froedtert Hospital and MCW. Ms. Archabal’s experience and success in academic medicine philanthropy make her the ideal person for this position.”

“Greater effectiveness and efficiency can be achieved by centralizing the philanthropy programs at both MCW and Froedtert Hospital,” said Dr. Raymond. “The donor community has generously supported our shared vision for advanced patient care, scientific research, biomedical education, and community engagement. Moving forward together under Alice Archabal’s leadership, we will expand our opportunities to secure private support.” Over the past five years at Lurie Children’s, Archabal participated in the strategic development and execution of a comprehensive $675 million campaign. The campaign was critical in raising the needed funding for programs and services and to create Lurie Children’s, which opened last June. She managed a staff of 75 and was involved in all aspects of leading and operating a complex and highly successful development enterprise.

Prior to joining Lurie Children’s, Archabal was Chief Development Officer and Vice President of Philanthropy for Feeding America, headquartered in Chicago. She also worked over a 13-year period for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis where she held a variety of positions, including Senior Director of Regional Field Management. 

A graduate of Ripon College, Archabal began her career in philanthropy as Assistant Director of Special Events for the Chicago Lung Association.
