Arlington Heights, Ill. (PRWEB) May 02, 2012
Northwest Community Healthcare’s (NCH) Medical Group has expanded its network of expert doctors by acquiring the private practice of Gastroenterologist Nikos G. Christopoulos, MD. The addition of the Arlington Heights-based practice expands NCH Medical Group’s gastroenterology practice to three specialists in treating disorders of the digestive system at three convenient locations in the northwest suburbs.
Dr. Christopoulos has been in practice since 2005 and is board-certified in gastroenterology. The practice – located at 1700 W. Central Road, Suite 220, in Arlington Heights – has changed its name to NCH Medical Group effective April 30.
“Joining the NCH Medical Group enables me to spend more time practicing medicine and less time tending to the operational responsibilities that come with managing a private practice,” said Dr. Christopoulos. “I’m now surrounded with the resources of an integrated system of care that brings together primary care doctors and specialists, as well as award-winning hospital services.”
The NCH Medical Group offers a broad range of outpatient and inpatient services in addition to advanced treatment options at Northwest Community Hospital. The specialties of member physicians cover internal medicine, family practice, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, neurology and rheumatology. Each patient’s medical records are connected to the hospital, to specialists and to outpatient sites, making scheduling easier and eliminating extra testing.
“It all adds up to a better patient experience,” said 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 visit, and register for free health seminars.
