DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – M&M Orthopaedics, one of the most respected and recognized orthopaedic practices in the metropolitan area, has reached an agreement to be acquired by DuPage Medical Group. The agreement is expected to close mid-summer. The practice will operate as M&M Orthopaedics, a member of DuPage Medical Group, until a new name for the combined orthopaedic organization is announced. Terms of the agreement were not made public.
Patients will continue receiving service at M&M physicians’ current locations. M&M physicians also will continue practicing at all hospitals they currently serve.
“Joining with DMG allows us to continue to meet the logistical challenges posed by health care reform,” said M&M managing partner Dr. Steven Mash. “This is good news for our patients, because it ensures M&M’s ability to expand our services, as our commitment to extraordinary service and outcomes will be enhanced by our relationship with DMG.”
DMG is the state’s leading multi-specialty group practice with more than 370 primary care and specialty physicians in more than 50 locations. DMG treats about one third of DuPage County’s population with nearly 1.1 million visits annually.
“M&M and DMG are a great match when it comes to offering orthopaedic services in the suburban Chicago area. By combining the best doctors and resources of both our organizations, it will allow us to provide unparalleled value and support for our patients,” says DMG Department of Orthopaedics Chair Dr. Ken Sanders. “We look forward to working on the same team.”
The acquisition will expand DMG’s existing orthopaedic division to include M&M’s specialists, as well as additional patient care providers and staff. M&M has locations in Downers Grove, Naperville, Elmhurst, Aurora and Lemont.
“As we continue to expand our footprint and deepen our medical expertise, we remain focused on providing superior quality care,” says DMG CEO Mike Kasper. “Adding M&M to DMG’s already strong orthopaedic department provides the opportunity to deliver the most comprehensive integrated model of care in the area, offering patients in the region a fully integrated orthopaedic experience by improving access to and coordination of care.”
