The Loyola University Medical Center has a rich heritage that began nearly 135 years ago. In September 1870, Fr Arnold J.

This humble institution would eventually expand and become Loyola University of Chicago. As the first president, Father Damian began with a faculty of 4 priests and a student body of 37 men.
