This trans­for­ma­tive part­ner­ship with DuPage Med­ical Group sup­ports our evo­lu­tion and expan­sion as an inde­pen­dent physi­cian group and fur­thers our mis­sion to pro­vide high qual­i­ty and afford­able care options across the tri-states and beyond,” said Car­ol Brock­miller, the long-stand­ing CEO of Quin­cy Med­ical Group.​“Togeth­er, we will advance our joint goal of enhanc­ing the patient expe­ri­ence and help­ing ensure con­tin­ued suc­cess and pro­fes­sion­al growth for our physi­cians and team mem­bers,” explained Todd Pet­ty, M.D., Chair­man of Quin­cy Med­ical Group’s Board of Directors.

Dr. Todd Pet­ty remains Chair­man of Quin­cy Med­ical Group’s Board. DuPage Med­ical Group and Quin­cy Med­ical Group will have local clin­i­cal boards to over­see qual­i­ty of care and clin­i­cal best prac­tices, lever­ag­ing shared capa­bil­i­ties and infra­struc­ture to cre­ate a con­sis­tent and dis­tinc­tive patient expe­ri­ence across both organizations.
