Northwest Community Healthcare’s (NCH) Medical Group has expanded its network of expert doctors by acquiring Family Treatment Center. The addition of the single-site practice gives the NCH Medical Group six convenient locations in the northwest suburbs.
Family Treatment Center, which has been operating since 1986, serves approximately 2,500 patients who are 14 years of age and older. The Palatine-based internal medicine practice consists of Janet Reilly, MD, John Fox, MD, and Evelyn White, MD. The name of the practice will change to NCH Medical Group as of March 1.
“Joining the NCH Medical Group strengthens our ability to provide exceptional care for our patients,” Dr. Reilly says. “There’s value to physicians and hospitals working together.”
According to Michael Hartke, executive vice president of Clinics and Regional Services, the NCH Medical Group is seeking primary care and specialist physicians with the highest quality standards, professional conduct, and a firm commitment to superior patient service.
"We respect physicians' autonomy in their practice of medicine, and provide the technology, business management, marketing and referral resources for long-term success and security," says Hartke.
NCH's goal behind its integrated system of care is to deliver exceptional results to patients every time, at every location, and in every interaction. The former Family Treatment Center group is the third physician practice to partner with NCH by joining the NCH Medical Group.
