PE, the leader in the development and management of GI ambulatory surgery centers, is proud Central Jersey Ambulatory Surgical Center (CJASC) has become its 58th partnered center across the U.S. and seventh in the State of New Jersey.

CJASC is a two-room multi-specialty ambulatory surgery center that opened for operations in 2002.  The center currently performs over 8,000 procedures annually.

“We are thrilled about our decision to add Physicians Endoscopy as a corporate partner. Our coalition with PE provides the ideal business structure, and we welcome their experience and expertise in addressing a plethora of management, payment, and regulatory challenges in a changing practice environment. We were very impressed with their team throughout our discussions to bring them onboard as a business partner.  The flexibility they showed along the way, as well as their concern with maintaining the physician’s individuality, was instrumental in solidifying the relationship. PE’s geographic coverage in the tristate area should lead to the opportunity of further developing value-based contracts, which already exist in our GI practice, Digestive Healthcare Center. We expect that their involvement as our partners will align our financial interests on multiple levels and allow the physicians to continue delivering excellent healthcare in a value-based world,” said Charles Accurso, MD, FACG, Medical Director, CJASC.

“It has been a pleasure working with Dr. Charles Accurso and all the physician partners to bring this joint venture to fruition. The PE team is enthusiastic to embark on this new relationship working collaboratively to achieve even higher goals. While the center has been successful for many years, the owners have put their trust in a proven business partner to help support operations, reduce costs, and implement strategic planning for the next several years as healthcare continues to change.” Carol Stopa, SVP Business Development, PE.
