Progressive Family Care began in 2007 in Waterloo, IL at the Southern Illinois Center for Health. Our mission is to provide a medical home to Monroe County and the surrounding areas while displaying generosity, compassion and selflessness as the values that drive our mission.
In order to accomplish our goals and to serve our patients, Progressive Family Care employs only qualified and compassionate staff that works together everyday to commit themselves to the needs of their team members and patients.
Our medical home is comprised of specialists within the realm of primary care, including Board Certified Pediatricians, Family Physicians, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. The medical home includes offices in Waterloo and Columbia. The Waterloo office offers Saturday office hours in order to serve the needs of our growing community.
We provide employee education, benefits and a quality work environment that’s essential to building a quality medical home. Education of our staff on regulations dictated by OSHA, CLIA, HIPAA, and the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation will be maintained by certification. Continuing medical education is ongoing by our Physicians and Physician Extenders to meet the requirements of board certification. In addition, the Physicians and Extenders will maintain a code of conduct consistent with the ethics prescribed by the American Medical Association. These efforts will be portrayed and regulated by our leadership team.
We’ll continue to expand technology, provide patient education, and promote efficiency to enhance our mission. Electronic Medical Records will shape the future of our practice. We’ll continue to react to changes in the healthcare environment in order to maintain patient satisfaction as well as promote staff development and maintain a satisfactory work place.
