Primary Care Medical Practice in Hockessin, Delaware Joins ChristianaCare’s Network of Practices

Quality Family Physicians medical practice located in Hockessin, Delaware has joined ChristianaCare’s award winning network of primary care practices.

The new name of the practice is ChristianaCare Primary Care at Stone Mill. The practice has been led by Kathleen Willey, M.D., since 1999.

With the addition of the practice, ChristianaCare now operates 30 primary care practices for adults and children throughout Delaware, Southeastern Pennsylvania, Southern New Jersey and Eastern Maryland.

ChristianaCare operates another primary care practice nearby at 726 Yorklyn Road in Hockessin and is exploring options for one expanded site in the future.

“ChristianaCare strives to make a positive impact on the health of every person in every community we serve,” said Christine Donohue Henry, M.D., ChristianaCare’s chief population health officer. “That includes increasing access to primary care services that will help people achieve their very best health.

“We welcome Dr. Willey, her staff and the patients from her practice to ChristianaCare. Their addition strengthens ChristianaCare as a preferred provider of high-quality primary care services in communities of Northern Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania.”

The physicians and support staff remain at the practice and continue to provide friendly, high-quality care and service as part of  ChristianaCare.

Current providers are:

  • Kathleen Willey, M.D.
  • Delaney Hallowell, PAC
  • Michelle Finnegan, PAC

Family practice physician Genevieve Minick, M.D., will join the practice in October 2022. The practice plans to add more providers in the future.

Patients who belong to a ChristianaCare primary care practice benefit from the advantages of being connected to Delaware’s largest, most advanced health care system, including electronic medical records and easy referrals. Their primary care provider becomes their “medical home” — the place where patients can build a relationship with their health care provider and seek medical advice for health problems large and small.

The seamless transition to ChristianaCare enables the practice to continue to provide optimal primary care services, including physical examinations, preventive health screenings and immunizations, chronic disease management and care for acute illnesses. Patients of ChristianaCare’s primary care practices can access a secure patient portal that helps them to be actively engaged in their health.

ChristianaCare’s primary care practices are certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Patient-Centered Medical Home. The patient-centered medical home model of care puts patients at the forefront of care, improving quality and the patient experience and increasing caregiver satisfaction while reducing costs.

The address of the practice:

ChristianaCare Primary Care at Stone Mill
722 Yorklyn Road, Suite 400
Hockessin, DE 19707
