That’s what those in the Farrell family called JCU because of brothers William ’77, Brian ’78, and Richard ’79. Their almost identical educational path led them to become medical doctors at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, Ill., where they were born. Dr. William Farrell is an orthopedist; Dr. Brian Farrell is an otorhinolaryngologist (ear, nose, and throat); and Dr. Richard Farrell is an internist. Their lives have come full circle.
While growing up in the ’60s and ’70s in Evergreen Park in a house with seven kids and a father, William, who was a pediatrician, the phone rang constantly in the Farrell household. The family had two phone lines – one for hospital calls and one for nonmedical calls.
“We grew up immersed in medicine,” Bill says. “Everyone in the family ended up involved in health care in some way.”
