Dr. J. William Cook

When Dr. J. William “Bill” Cook recently became the president of the St. Agnes Medical Group, he understood that he was tasked with leading a ministry that began more than 150 years ago. The medical group can trace its roots back to the work of the Daughters of Charity during the Civil War.

A primary care physician with St. Agnes for 25 years, Cook said his faith is something he always falls back on. 

“I’ve spent more of my life being a Catholic than being a doctor,” he said.
