April 21, 2020

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Recognizing the growing need for behavioral and mental health services among its patient community, DuPage Medical Group quietly acquired the Institute for Personal Development (IPD) in May 2019.

IPD is a progressive and thriving practice that provides psychological, psychiatric and integrative medicine services. As a member of DMG, IPD has a team of more than 50 clinicians across ten Chicagoland locations (Aurora, Chicago, Downers Grove, Joliet, Lisle, Morris, Naperville, Orland Park, Ottawa and Romeoville).

"We are excited to be a part of DMG and provide expanded behavioral health services to the broader suburban communities that DMG has served for more than 20 years," said Ronald Wuest, MD, founder and medical director of IPD. "DMG’s team-oriented and integrated care model allows us to provide behavioral healthcare for more patients who may be in need of these services."

IPD’s team of clinicians take a nurturing, patient-centered approach using a variety of traditional and non-traditional therapies, emerging methods and technologies to help individuals achieve long-lasting mental, emotional and physical well-being.

"We are pleased to welcome IPD to our family of services and look forward to continuing to build on the foundation they have established for behavioral and mental health services," said Mike Pacetti, CFO and Co-CEO of DMG. "IPD’s expertise and long-standing reputation in behavioral health aligns with our strategy of providing integrated, high quality and holistic patient care."

DMG and IPD realize that members of their patient community may be experiencing increased levels of stress and anxiety during the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. Given social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home mandates, IPD is now offering telehealth video visits.
