In 1997, our physicians opened the Endoscopy Center of Connecticut -- the first free-standing ambulatory center of its kind in the state of Connecticut -- so that our patients would have a comfortable, convenient, and cost-effective alternative to hospital-based procedures.
Today, we operate two endoscopy centers: one next door to our Hamden office in the Spring Glen Medical Center and one adjacent to our Guilford office in the Sound Medical Center. Both facilities offer:
- state-of-the-art technology for the most sophisticated care
- an efficient and dedicated nursing staff that specializes in endoscopy
- amenities like propofol anesthesia and private recovery rooms to help our patients feel at ease
- voluntary accreditation by the Joint Commission (formerly the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations)
Our endoscopy center has always had high quality standards because the safety of our patients is our highest priority. We have been even more diligent in maintaining these standards since the COVID-19 pandemic and have implemented changes to our pre-procedure protocol. These changes were created based on the guidance of national GI associations as well as state and national organizations including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
