Company Information

BPS and Blessing Hospital are headquartered in Quincy, Illinois, population 50,000, which is located on high limestone bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River near the westernmost point of Illinois.  Quincy is renowned for its natural beauty, preservation of its exceptional stock of Victorian Era homes, and its highly developed programs in the arts.  It has a highly diverse economic and employment base, and consistently has one of the lowest unemployment rates in Illinois.  It has been cited as one of the 50 top small arts communities in the U.S. and one of the Top 100 small cities in which to live in the U.S.  In 2010, Forbes Magazine rated it as the 8th Best Small City in the U.S. to Raise a Family. 

The Quincy community also offers excellent public and parochial schools, a public 2-year community college, a private 4-year university, two private vocational colleges, fine dining, expansive and well developed parks, and abundant recreational facilities. An $89 million school bond issue was passed in 2014.  Five new state-of-the art elementary schools are being built to replace aging and outdated buildings. An addition will be built at Quincy Senior High to make room for 9th graders. This will move the district to a configuration of five K-5 elementary schools, grades 6-8 at the current junior high, and grades 9-12 at QHS. Technology updates will be made at all schools. 

Quincy offers fine dining, expansive and well developed parks, and abundant recreational facilities.  It is located two hours from St. Louis, three and a half hours from Kansas City, and four hours from Chicago.  Daily flights connect Quincy’s Baldwin Field with Chicago O’Hare International Airport, and Amtrak provides two round trips daily to Chicago.  Hamilton is a quaint community located across the Mississippi River from Keokuk, Iowa.
