Quincy Medical Group is expanding hours for many of its departments, with some of the new hours starting today.

The move is intended to accommodate patients' busy schedules.

"Customer service is our number one priority," said Heather Schreck, senior director of Imaging and Cardiac Services. "We want to make sure we are doing everything in our power to make our patients' lives easier and less stressful."

Starting today, Ambulatory Care, X-Ray, Ultrasound and the Laboratory will be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Fridays. CT will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"It may just be a few extra hours we're open, but we think that's going to be such an added convenience for our patients," said Dr. Tim Jacobs of Ambulatory Care.

Starting Monday, the Infusion Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays. In the past, the Infusion Center was only open until 5 p.m. during the week and was not open on Saturdays.

"I'm excited for the change," said Amy Cannell, director of Specialty Services said. "I think we're evolving to meet the changing needs of our patients."
