Ranch developer gives $20M to medical center

Chicago-area businessman John M. Boler and his wife, Mary Jo, have given $20 million to Rush University Medical Center to create what will be one of the most advanced imaging centers in the country to diagnose and treat patients for everything including heart attacks and cancer.

John Boler is known locally as the owner and developer of Sidney Peak Ranch, a 1,500 private working ranch community a few miles south of Steamboat Springs.

The Boler gift is the largest single donation to Rush, and one of the largest gifts to a Chicago-area hospital. The new imaging centers will be named Theary Jo and John Boler Centers for Advanced Imaging.

John Boler is chairman of the Boler Company in Itasca, Ill. It is a holding company that does business as Hendrickson International. The Boler Company, among the largest privately held firms in the truck industry, makes truck and trailer suspension systems and auxiliary axle systems for the commercial heavy-duty vehicle market.
