Please re-read the article... it said a FLAT year. That means no expected growth and no expected losses.So spectulating and crying doom is very premature.

Layoffs probably inevitable but speculating on a move out of state or country is premature. As for your other questions I would refer you to Rosanne Rosanadanna - her first response would be "You sure ask a lot of questions for somebody from New Jersey". Sorry to the youngens out these who weren't exposed to Rosanne - very funny stuff.

Money goes to Quincy Catholic Charities Medassist program

The Gem City was on display for this year’s 14th Annual Bridge the Gap to Health race. The race featured a new route which took runners and walkers through Quincy’s historic downtown and past the organization which benefits from the proceeds of the race – Quincy Catholic Charities. The Quincy Medical Group Healthcare Foundation presented a check in the amount of $42,634.48 to Quincy Catholic Charities’ MedAssist Program. The donation comes from a combination of registration fees, donations, and sponsors. Sponsors of this year’s race were DOT Foods, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Illinois, Sisters of St. Francis, Oldenburg, Quincy Recycle, Quincy Herald Whig, OSF Mission Activities, State Street Bank, Mark Twain Casino, Kohl Wholesale, ADM, Sam’s Club, Quincy Compressor, and Titan International.

“This year you could feel the excitement and energy from our participants as they experienced Bridge the Gap in a new way through our new route,” said Carol Brockmiller QMG Chief Operating Officer and QMG Healthcare Foundation Board Member. “We believe this enthusiasm will continue into our 15th race next year and result in higher participation which equates to more support for the MedAssist program.”

Since 2001, the MedAssist program has helped patients obtain nearly 46,000 prescriptions at a value of more than $16.5 million. The MedAssist Program helps leverage medications from pharmaceutical companies to families who meet income guidelines and other criteria set forth by the pharmaceutical company. MedAssist is funded solely through the generosity of the United Way, Bridge the Gap to Health, individual donations and minimal patient fees.

“Each year we are so grateful for the amount of money this race is able to raise for our MedAssist program,” Jackie Bruns, Quincy Catholic Charities Area Director said, “Without the generous support of QMG and the Bridge the Gap committee, hundreds in our community would go without prescriptions that help them manage chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. These are medications that our clients simply could not afford on their own and must choose to go without; putting their health and life in jeopardy.”

The 2015 race is set for May 16. For more information about Bridge the Gap to Health, go to www.bridgethegaptohealth.com.
