Endoscopy Center

 
In June 2003, the Medical Center opened a new state-of-the-art Endoscopy Center. The 10,000-square-foot facility is located across the street from the Medical Center and has an underground walkway for the convenience of our patients and staff. It has a modern, spacious design with a waiting room capacity for more than fifty-five people.

The Center has six procedure rooms with the latest in state-of-the-art equipment that allows our board-certified team of gastroenterologists and pulmonologists to perform all endoscopic procedures in the safest and most technologically advanced setting possible. Our patients enjoy a comfortable setting in which to have their procedures and recuperate.

The Center is staffed with a culturally diverse team that can provide both information and education to our patients in Russian, Chinese (Mandarin & Cantonese) and Spanish. The Center is also equipped with the deaf talk system.
