Northwest Community Healthcare’s Medical Group expanded its network of expert doctors on Tuesday, Jan. 31, by acquiring Family Treatment Center.
The addition of the single-site practice gives the NCH Medical Group six locations in the northwest suburbs, a press release stated.
Family Treatment Center, which has been operating since 1986, serves approximately 2,500 patients who are 14 years of age and older. With offices in Suite 100 at 500 N. Hicks Road in Palatine, the 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,” stated Dr. Reilly in a press release. “There’s value to physicians and hospitals working together.”
The NCH Medical Group offers a broad range of inpatient and outpatient services in addition to advanced treatment options at Northwest Community Hospital.
The specialties of member physicians cover internal medicine, family practice, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology and rheumatology. Each patient’s medical records are connected to the hospital, to specialists and to outpatient sites, making scheduling easier while eliminating extra testing.
“It all adds up to a better patient experience,” stated Michael Hartke, executive vice president of Clinics and Regional Services at NCH. “We can take care of your basic healthcare needs, but also use the extensive resources of our system to excel in complex cases that require multiple doctors working from the same playbook.”
Patients of the NCH Medical Group can go online to request doctor appointments, ask questions, download and complete registration forms prior to their office visits, and register for free health seminars.
