In a move designed to support its bold vision for decades of continued physician-directed medicine aimed at helping humans flourish, Quincy Medical Group (QMG) officially became a member of Duly Health and Care in early December 2021. Together, the groups will forge a new path for improved access to affordable and patient-centric healthcare, while deepening investment in local services and programs that deliver an extraordinary experience for people across Illinois, Iowa, Missouri, and beyond.
Dr. Todd Petty, Surgeon and QMG Board Chairman said, “We join Duly today from a position of strength — with aligned strategic priorities and aspirations. As part of the Duly organization, we will invest in the expansion of health offerings, advancement of innovation, and delivery of the best care for our patients. This new partnership comes at the right time for our physicians and team members, and it is the right thing to do for the communities we serve.”
Duly Health and Care is building a new kind of healthcare organization that supports physician ownership, direction, and clinical decision making while strategically investing in technology that enables innovation; all with a relentless drive to help physicians care for patients in the best ways possible.
QMG Chief Executive Officer Carol Brockmiller said, “As part of the Duly family, we look forward to challenging the expected because our region deserves extraordinary healthcare. Our physicians and team members are joining a mighty force in healthcare’s future.”
“Duly Health and Care is delighted to welcome Quincy Medical Group,” said Steve Nelson, Chief Executive Officer of Duly. “The Quincy team has a remarkable track record of excellence and a rich legacy of community caring.”
Duly is led by Nelson and Dr. Paul Merrick, its Clinical Board Chairman. Brockmiller will remain CEO of Quincy Medical Group and will join the Duly’s Senior Management Team. Dr. Todd Petty remains Chairman of QMG’s Board of Managers, which will continue to oversee physician recruitment and retention, quality of care, and clinical best practices. By leveraging shared capabilities and infrastructure, a consistent and distinctive patient experience will be built across the Duly and QMG organizations.
Dr. Merrick concluded, “From QMG’s established foundation and proven success, we will work together to create unrivaled patient experience while working to raise the standard for quality, physician-directed care.”
