The physicians of AZ West Endoscopy Center (AZWEC) joined by Physicians Endoscopy are pleased to announce the commencement of operations November 2011 at their new three-room endoscopic ambulatory surgery center located in Phoenix, Arizona. AZWEC is a state-of-the-art facility in every respect. This new free-standing endoscopic ambulatory surgery facility,developed by a four-physician coalition — Hector Rodriguez, MD; Patrick Lam, MD; Mansur Khan, MD; and Kandarp Patel, MD — expects to serve 5,500 patients annually.
“We developed this beautiful new facility to help us meet the changing needs of our patients. AZWEC is strategically designed and located for the convenience and comfort of our patients. To help us meet and exceed our goals, we teamed up with Physicians Endoscopy (PE), one of the nation’s premier developers and managers of endoscopic ambulatory surgery centers. We chose PE because we wanted to ensure that AZWEC
would be among the best facilities of its kind anywhere in this area. Now we are proud to announce the official opening of our surgical facility conveniently located near our professional practice locations. We have made substantial investments in each of our practices and in our continued ability to deliver the highest quality care to our patients,“ stated Hector Rodriguez, MD, Medical Director and member of the board of directors at AZ West Endoscopy Center.
“We are tremendously excited about our partnership with this strong group of four GI physicians to develop another center in Arizona. This represents our second project in the state of Arizona, and AZWEC is the 20th partnered facility to join the PE family. “The PE Team is completely committed to helping the physicians deliver the safest possible services to their patients. Working with the physicians and learning about their commitment to their community has been very rewarding,” stated Carol Stopa, Vice President of New Business Development.
