April 21, 2020

DOWN­ERS GROVE, Ill. — Rec­og­niz­ing the grow­ing need for behav­ioral and men­tal health ser­vices among its patient com­mu­ni­ty, DuPage Med­ical Group qui­et­ly acquired the Insti­tute for Per­son­al Devel­op­ment (IPD) in May 2019.

IPD is a pro­gres­sive and thriv­ing prac­tice that pro­vides psy­cho­log­i­cal, psy­chi­atric and inte­gra­tive med­i­cine ser­vices. As a mem­ber of DMG, IPD has a team of more than 50 clin­i­cians across ten Chicagoland loca­tions (Auro­ra, Chica­go, Down­ers Grove, Joli­et, Lisle, Mor­ris, Naperville, Orland Park, Ottawa and Romeoville).

We are excit­ed to be a part of DMG and pro­vide expand­ed behav­ioral health ser­vices to the broad­er sub­ur­ban com­mu­ni­ties that DMG has served for more than 20 years,” said Ronald Wuest, MD, founder and med­ical direc­tor of IPD. DMG’s team-ori­ent­ed and inte­grat­ed care mod­el allows us to pro­vide behav­ioral health­care for more patients who may be in need of these services.”

IPD’s team of clin­i­cians take a nur­tur­ing, patient-cen­tered approach using a vari­ety of tra­di­tion­al and non-tra­di­tion­al ther­a­pies, emerg­ing meth­ods and tech­nolo­gies to help indi­vid­u­als achieve long-last­ing men­tal, emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal well-being.

We are pleased to wel­come IPD to our fam­i­ly of ser­vices and look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to build on the foun­da­tion they have estab­lished for behav­ioral and men­tal health ser­vices,” said Mike Pacetti, CFO and Co-CEO of DMG. IPD’s exper­tise and long-stand­ing rep­u­ta­tion in behav­ioral health aligns with our strat­e­gy of pro­vid­ing inte­grat­ed, high qual­i­ty and holis­tic patient care.”
