Since 2006, our Quincy Medical Group (QMG) oncologists have served the Pittsfield area at Illini Hospital. Beginning in November, we will have a new home! Our oncology team will begin providing hematology and oncology services in a repurposed space inside our current Pittsfield Clinic location. QMG wants to ensure you are able to receive cancer treatment close to home and, along with the opening of our new Cancer Institute in Quincy early next year, we’re happy to announce this expansion of oncology services in our Pittsfield clinic.
We understand you may have questions. We’re happy to help! Below are some answers that may help. If you have others, please give our oncology team at call at (217) 222-6550 choose option #1, then extension 5545.
Where are you moving?
Our hematology and oncology services will relocate to our Quincy Medical Group (QMG) Pittsfield Clinic location at 320 N. Madison Street in Pittsfield. Construction is already underway to ready the space for you.
Why are our doctors moving?
QMG is committed to providing you with the best care experience. By adding oncology and hematology services to our existing Pittsfield Clinic, we’re able to offer you a complete care experience. You’ll have convenient access to the wide range of services already offered at our location including primary and specialty care services as well as lab and x-ray.
When will appointments be available at the new location?
Our first day seeing patients in the new location will be Wednesday, November 6. Our oncology physicians will be in Pittsfield seeing patients every Wednesday as well as the second Tuesday of the month. During the construction of our space, our doctors will continue to see you at Illini.
