St. Charles resident, Loyola University Medical Center’s first COVID-19 patient, is fully recovered and feeling like he’s ’40 again’

Ted Roberts, 68, is living his best life. He walks seven miles each morning near his home in St. Charles, Illinois; continues to work full time; and says he feels like he’s “40 again and my body is running on rocket fuel.”

It’s hard to believe that just seven months ago, Roberts contracted a near-fatal case of COVID-19, becoming the first patient with the disease to be admitted to Loyola University Medical Center, and the first patient at Loyola to receive the test drug remdesivir. During his hospitalization, Roberts, a Type 1 diabetic with broader autoimmune disease, spent nearly two weeks in the intensive care unit and 10 days on a ventilator.

The mayor and his supporters hailed the deal for providing new revenue for the cash-strapped city and praised the hospital for being a good community partner. But critics argued that Paterson was short-changed in the settlement by accepting a fraction of the money it could have gotten from the hospital.

St. Joseph’s owns about 35 properties in Paterson assessed at a total of $187 million, according to public records. If the hospital paid full taxes like other property owners, its annual bill would be $7.8 million, the records show.
