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 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  Five new state-of-the art elementary schools are being built to replace aging and outdated buildings.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. Students will be provided an updated and engaging learning environment to prepare them for success in an increasingly technology driven world.

 

There is also fine dining, expansive and well developed parks, and abundant recreational facilities.  Quincy 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.

Situation

Blessing Physician Services is a 85+ provider, multi-specialty group affiliated with the not-for-profit Blessing Health System, the largest medical provider serving a 350,000 population region composed of West Central Illinois, Northeast Missouri, and Southeast Iowa.  The System operates Blessing Hospital, a 337-bed regional referral enter in Quincy, Illinois, and Illini Community Hospital, a 25-bed Critical Access Hospital in Pittsfield, Illinois, (population 4,300).  It also provides services contractually to a number of smaller healthcare organizations in the region.

 

The group opened an ENT department in 2010 with the recruitment of an experienced Otolaryngologist.  His practice grew rapidly but he recently chose to return to California to be closer to family.  To maintain and grow the practice we are seeking two ENT’s with outstanding contemporary training who want to build a robust practice while enjoying a great balance between professional and family life.  We are currently staffing the department part-time with a temporary physician.  Due to succession planning, the community has a high need for additional ENT’s.  This is an opportunity to build a highly successful practice.   As a not-for-profit health system, we accept all patients regardless of economic condition or insurance coverage.  The right physicians will enjoy quick growth of the practice and income to match.  The group is housed in a newer 140,000 sq. ft. clinic building connected by air-bridge to the main hospital, offering maximum convenience and efficiency.  An audiologist is housed in the suite as well.

 

The right candidate needs to be willing to do trauma and take ER call.  Support includes a Level II Trauma Center with 50,000 annual visits.  Board Certification is an expectation of all our physicians.
