Alberto L. Delgado, Emergency Physician at Union Hospital Clinton and at Iroquois Memorial Hospital, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in emergency medicine.
Introduced to health care at a young age, Dr. Delgado has long dreamed of making his mark on the field. He grew up watching his father, an urologist and principal professor in Lima, Peru, and decided he wanted to do the same. In pursuit of his passion, he earned an MD from Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in 1978 and completed an internship at San Juan de Dios in 1979, a residency in general surgery at Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos in 1980, and a residency in family medicine at the University of Illinois between 1981 and 1984. Over the years, Dr. Delgado enhanced his professional standing with a diploma from the Education Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates and from the American Board of Family Medicine, licenses to practice medicine in the states of Wisconsin, Indiana, and Illinois, and an MBA from the University of Illinois. He also became certified in advanced cardiac life support, advanced trauma life support, pediatric advanced life support, and emergency medicine.
Dr. Delgado started his professional journey as a family physician in his own private practice. After eight years, he obtained a position as an emergency physician at Sarah Bush Hospital and realized he had found his niche. He proceeded to hold the title of emergency physician at St. John’s Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital, St. Vincent Hospital, Cottage Hospital, Hoopeston Community Hospital, St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital, Salem Township Hospital, St. Mary’s Good Samaritans Hospital, and BroMenn Regional Medical Center, among many others. Now, Dr. Delgado is lending his expertise to Union Hospital Clinton and Iroquois Memorial Hospital.
Outside of clinical work, Dr. Delgado was involved as an instructor in advanced cardiac life support and as a clinical associate professor in family medicine at the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois. He was also a member of various hospital committees at Presence United Samaritans Medical Center and the Quality Council of the United Samaritans Medical Center, an alternate delegate in the House of Delegates at the Illinois Medical Society, the chairman of the Department of Family Medicine at St. Elizabeth Hospital, and the vice president of the board of directors of Vermilion Health Ltd. HMO. To this day, he remains a member of the emergency medicine board of directors for the American Association of Physician Specialists and a member of the American Medical Association, the Illinois Academy of Family Physicians, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Illinois College of Emergency Physicians, and the Peruvian American Medical Society.
Looking to the future, Dr. Delgado intends to slow down his emergency medicine endeavors so that he can devote himself to being a proctor for the American Association of Physician Therapists. He also wants to become more involved in administrative and leadership roles, to volunteer in Peru on mission trips, and to research and write more.
