Anita L. Pinc, D.O. passed away, August 2020. Her death is a loss to the entire Group family and to the many patients who benefited from her skills.
Dr. Anita Pinc grew up in Naperville, Illinois, and attended Augustana College receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology with a minor in psychology. She received her medical degree from Midwestern University Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine and it was at that time that she acquired an interest in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She completed her internship at Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital and Michael Reese Hospital. Anita moved to Toledo, Ohio to complete her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center and upon completion of her residency, Dr. Pinc returned to the Quad Cities to begin her practice in 2001.
A fellow of The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Dr. Pinc was passionate about providing the highest quality, compassionate care to her patients. Dr. Pinc delivered in excess of 2,000 “bundles of joy” to Quad City parents in her 19 years of practice. In addition to her busy OB-Gyn schedule, she served as Medical Director for sister company, Revive at The Group Medical Spa. Outside of medicine, she raised four wonderful children and was actively involved in their life adventures. She wore a beautiful smile and was always admired for her kind, compassionate spirit and strong faith. She advocated for many local charities and community organizations and loved spending time with her family and friends, exploring nature, gardening, dancing, running, hiking, and skiing.
The loss of Anita will be felt by the community and Group family for a long time. She was universally loved by her patients, colleagues, and friends.
The remaining seven physicians at The Group, along with seven certified nurse midwives, two advanced nurse practitioners, and physicians assistant have opened their schedules for patients with future appointments to assure the continuity of her quality, compassionate care.

Dr. Anita L. Pinc Memorial Scholarship Recipient - 2021
"I am very thankful to be chosen to receive this scholarship. Dr. Pinc's passion for medicine and drive to help women in this field is inspiring and I am honored to represent her values in this way. This scholarship will go toward my medical school tuition and further me on my journey towards serving my future patients.
Despite the rigor, I am thankful each and every day to be where I am now and for the education and opportunities that medical school provides. My goal is to graduate and pursue a primary care specialty such as OB/GYN where I can form meaningful bonds and provide high-quality care to my patients, and this scholarship will help me to get there.
I plan to emulate the principles that Dr. Pinc upheld and follow in her footsteps to be an influential and well-loved physician and community member. I truly hope to honor her memory through my work. I deeply appreciate all you do to help students like me pursue their passions."
