The Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital Create New Fundraising Collaboration

Earlier this year, the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital made the strategic decision to integrate their fundraising operations to better serve our donors and the community. We launched a national search for an individual to lead this effort and selected Alice G. Archabal to be our new Chief Development Officer and Vice President – Institutional Advancement for Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Alice comes to us most recently from the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago Foundation where she served as Senior Vice President/Chief Operating Officer. She has a wealth of knowledge and is an accomplished leader with extensive experience in healthcare fundraising.

Alice joined our staff on July 29 and provides leadership for the development activities of the Medical College of Wisconsin and Froedtert Hospital. She oversees the MCW Office of Development, MCW Alumni Relations, and the Froedtert Hospital Foundation and the integration of fundraising operations for both organizations. Excited by the new opportunity, Alice says, "As part of the new partnership between Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College, we have begun to transition our fundraising efforts to a true collaborative structure. Our staff resources are being aligned to support the joint strategic clinical and research visions of Froedtert and the Medical College. We have an excellent team of enthusiastic professionals who are excited to launch this new vision with me."
