Press Release:

BROOKHAVEN GASTROENTEROLGY ASSOCIATES OPENS

AMBULATORY SURGERY CENTER IN EAST PATCHOGUE

 

Great South Bay Endoscopy Center received New York State Department of Health approval to open as Suffolk County’s newest single specialty gastroenterology ambulatory surgery center (ASC). The center, founded by five Board-certified physicians of Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates, saw its first patients on Aug. 8, 2014.

With the opening of the center, the physicians will perform their procedures at a newly constructed, state-of-the-art, 3,500 square foot facility adjoined with the existing Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates practice. The Great South Bay Endoscopy Center will employ approximately 12 staff members, including nurses, anesthesiologists, technicians and administrative staff. Seven gastroenterologists, who hold privileges at Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center, will be performing procedures out of the new facility.

The physicians of Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates decided to build an ASC as they felt performing procedures in an ASC would improve the patient experience and allow the physicians to continue to deliver best-in-class care to the local community over the long-term. The center is equipped with an industry leading CO2 insufflation system, which clinical studies have confirmed is associated with decreased post-procedural pain, flatus, and bowel distention.

 

Frontier Healthcare Holdings, a New York-based developer and manager of ambulatory surgery centers, partnered with the physicians to develop and manage the center. “Frontier is excited to partner with the physicians of Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates to create this outstanding new ASC that will deliver best-in-class care to patients in the Suffolk area,” said Jordan Fowler, CEO of Frontier Healthcare.

Mission Statement 

The primary objective of Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates is to provide the highest quality of specialty care in gastroenterology, hepatology and gastrointestinal endoscopy for Long Island by creating an environment that encourages compassion, dedication and attention to the safety and individual needs of our patients. 

 

About Us

For over 40 years, Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates has been devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of digestive and liver diseases.  All our physicians are board certified in Gastroenterology and treat a variety of conditions from common diarrhea, and  heartburn to diagnosing rare cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.  

Gastroenterology is a specialty dedicated to evaluating the intestines (including the stomach, small and large intestines), liver, pancreas, and gallbladder.  With the aid of fiberoptic technology, extensive portions of the intestines can be examined and biopsied.  Colonoscopy or lower endoscopy has been an instrumental part of the public health initiative of screening for colon cancer.  Over the years we have also adopted the latest technologies including wireless capsule endoscopy, which takes thousands of pictures of the small intestine using a pill like camera, and  Endoscopic Ultrasound that helps better visualize and biopsy lesions throughout the body using special ultrasound guidance.

In addition, we have completed a renovation of our facilities providing modern amenities for our patients as well as state-of-the-art office based endoscopy units where outpatient procedures can be safely performed.  Our endoscopy unit has been accredited by the Association for Ambulatory Healthcare (AAHC). 

At BGA, patients can be assured of our commitment to high quality, cost-effective health care in a respectful and compassionate environment.   Please schedule an appointment and find out why BGA is the right practice for you.
