November 07, 2016

DOWN­ERS GROVE, Ill. — DuPage Med­ical Group, the largest inde­pen­dent, mul­ti-spe­cial­ty physi­cian group in the Chica­go area, has acquired Sur­gi­cal Con­sul­tants of Joli­et, LTD and Glo­ria Caru­so, MD, SC. Terms of each acqui­si­tion were not made public. 

As a result, DMG wel­comes two board-cer­ti­fied sur­geons to its med­ical staff. Dr. Eric Bass earned a med­ical degree from the Uni­ver­si­ty of South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, where he received the Dean’s Award for Aca­d­e­m­ic Excel­lence. He com­plet­ed a res­i­den­cy in gen­er­al surgery at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Illi­nois at Chica­go. His med­ical inter­ests include col­orec­tal can­cer, pelvic floor dis­or­ders, anorec­tal dis­ease and abdom­i­nal surgery. 

Also join­ing the physi­cian team is Dr. Mark Daniel­son, who earned a med­ical degree from North­west­ern Uni­ver­si­ty in Chica­go. Daniel­son com­plet­ed a res­i­den­cy in gen­er­al surgery at the Med­ical Col­lege of Wis­con­sin in Mil­wau­kee. His med­ical inter­ests include her­nias, breast can­cer, laparo­scop­ic surgery, endoscopy and intra-abdom­i­nal procedures. 

Both sur­geons remain on staff at Pres­ence St. Joseph Med­ical Cen­ter and Sil­ver Cross Hos­pi­tal. They will con­tin­ue see­ing patients at 2 Uno Cir­cle in Joli­et. Appoint­ments are avail­able by call­ing (815) 725‑2277. Mean­while, DMG also wel­comes Dr. Glo­ria Caru­so, a board-cer­ti­fied gas­troen­terol­o­gist. She earned a med­ical degree from Chica­go Med­ical School. She com­plet­ed a res­i­den­cy in inter­nal med­i­cine at Loy­ola Uni­ver­si­ty Med­ical Cen­ter and a fel­low­ship in gas­troen­terol­o­gy at Loy­ola Uni­ver­si­ty Med­ical Cen­ter in Chicago. 

Caru­so will be on staff at North­west­ern Med­i­cine Cen­tral DuPage Hos­pi­tal, Edward Hos­pi­tal and North­west­ern Med­i­cine Del­nor Hos­pi­tal. While her Bloom­ing­dale office will close, she will begin see­ing patients in two loca­tions — at 25 N. Win­field Road, Suite 300, in Win­field, and at 4575 Weaver Park­way, Suite 200, in War­renville. Patients can call 630−717−2600 to sched­ule an appoint­ment with Caru­so at both locations. 

The DMG fam­i­ly is delight­ed to wel­come Drs. Bass and Daniel­son, as well as Dr. Caru­so, to our grow­ing team,” said DMG Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer Den­nis Fine. These expe­ri­enced physi­cians will each great­ly strength­en our abil­i­ty to serve patients when and where they need it most.”
