Alton MultiSpecialists

Our History

Alton MultiSpecialists is a team of board-certified physicians in Alton IL founded by the late Chester (Chet) Hill, MD. Dr. Hill opened his medical practice in Alton July 1982. He brought together a group of highly skilled specialists to provide services for intensive care and other seriously ill patients. The small cluster of physicians was then called Critical Care Consultants. The following year, Dr. Hill opened his Internal Medicine Practice to all adults. He was particularly respected by his patients and peers for his superior knowledge and genuine, caring bedside manner.

In July 1983, Dr. Hill began a search for other exceptional board-certified physicians to meet Alton’s need for more doctors. The group chose the name Alton MultiSpecialists (AMS). As the group attracted more and more patients, it outgrew its location at the St. Clare’s Office Building on Fifth Street. Therefore, Dr. Hill and his physicians drew up plans for a new building at the ideal location of College Avenue and Homer Adams Parkway. An avid gardener, Dr. Hill planned the landscape at the new site and even planted many of the trees and shrubs himself. AMS has since relocated to the new building in September 1994. Modern radiology facilities and lab draw services are housed in the lower level. A spacious north area, the Community Room, was designated for giving educational talks to the community. Dr. Hill saw the need for more Primary Care doctors, so additional internists and pediatricians were recruited to work in the new building.

Dr. Hill’s untimely death in October 1995, at the age of 49, will always be felt as a great loss to his family, patients, colleagues, employees, and the entire local and greater St. Louis medical community.

Alton MultiSpecialists doctors in Alton IL are board certified or board eligible and have over 75 employees working as a health care team. Since 1997, Alton MultiSpecialists has been selected by the Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) as one of its national better performing practices. The groups rapid growth, while maintaining top quality medical care, is due to the vision of its beloved founder, Dr. Hill.

The new building was dedicated to Dr. Hill on July 15, 1996. A fountain was erected in his honor and is a symbol of his sparkling, gregarious personality, unmatched energy and the refreshment his life brought to all who knew him.
