DuPage Medical Group and QMG to Expand Delivery of Physician-Directed, Multi-Specialty Care
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.”

Making the Best Accessible to All
Managing your health can be tough. Getting the best care shouldn’t be.
Unfortunately for residents of the Quincy region, it too often is.
Limited healthcare options have resulted in Quincy-area residents paying disproportionately high rates for healthcare. In fact, we pay more than Chicago residents.
The new small-format hospital is designed to drive down costs and make the very best in patient care accessible to all. After all, we’re not just doctors. We’re your neighbors. And we believe everyone in Quincy deserves the very best.
QMG Hospital is part of QMG’s ongoing mission to improve care for the region, empower patients and their physicians, enhance care coordination and clinical outcomes, expand the community’s choices in healthcare services and reduce costs.
Quincy Medical Group Hospital will be a physician-led and governed nonprofit, taxable, organization. Excess revenues earned by the hospital will be reinvested in care and the community.

Frequently Asked Questions
We are building a patient-centered, physician-led, nonprofit, state-of-the-art, small-format hospital to expand access to the latest high-quality, low-cost care for the Tri-State area.
The hospital is part of our ongoing mission to improve care for residents of the region, empower patients and their physicians, enhance care coordination and clinical outcomes, expand the community’s choices in healthcare services, and reduce costs.
Increased competition through Quincy Medical Group (QMG) physicians caring for patients in their own inpatient facility will reduce healthcare costs. The new hospital will allow QMG patients to be under the care of their healthcare professional of choice along every step and in every setting of their healthcare journey. Research has shown that this continuity of care improves outcomes, lowers costs and increases patient satisfaction.
We are committed to providing the highest-quality care in the lowest-cost setting and have a demonstrated record of success getting this done. Currently, the only time we cannot effectively manage costs is when our patients require hospital care. The new small-format hospital will allow us to provide the same low-cost, high-quality care across all care settings.
All healthcare providers want what’s best for patients and everyone agrees that competition provides patients with more choice, lower costs, better clinical outcomes, and elevated patient experiences.
The hospital will have approximately 25 med-surg beds, 3 labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum or LDRP rooms, an emergency department with 10 bays, a c-section suite, 3 operating rooms, and 1 procedure room. It will also feature a post-anesthesia care unit, laboratory, pharmacy and imaging department. Three of the medical-surgical beds will be equipped to serve as negative pressure rooms, or isolation rooms, to aid in infectious disease outbreaks.
Yes. QMG Hospital will be structured as a physician-developed and physician-governed nonprofit, taxable hospital. Any profits from the operation of the hospital will be redirected towards the development of hospital facilities, like new equipment or for other operational purposes of the hospital. The facility will be adjacent to the QMG Cancer Institute and QMG Ambulatory Surgery Center, representing our commitment to delivering high-quality care that is best suited to our patients’ needs.
Healthcare is changing. Smaller, easy-access facilities are needed now and moving forward. This facility will be the perfect complement to our 18 existing practice sites across Illinois, Iowa and Missouri.
QMG has offered nearly every healthcare service over its rich, more than 80 year, history with the exception of hosting patients for overnight stays. We are building the hospital to offer these patients more choice, convenience and personalized guidance in their healthcare needs.
A certificate of need application seeking approval of the proposed hospital was submitted to the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board on December 10. Depending on the certificate of need process, and with the board’s approval, we hope to open QMG Hospital in late 2024.
QMG has been the region’s premier physician group for more than 80 years, providing services ranging from traditional primary care to robotic surgeries. With more than 1,000 employees and 18 existing practice sites across three states, we bring best-in-class care where it’s needed most.
