Physicians Endoscopy Acquires Minority Stake in Great South Bay Endoscopy

East Patchogue, NY– Physicians Endoscopy (PE) is pleased to announce the acquisition of Great South Bay Endoscopy (GSBE). Finalized on May 12, 2017, Physicians Endoscopy will provide a full range of ASC services working exclusively on the business and operational components of the Center.

Great South Bay Endoscopy, a two-room ambulatory surgery center located in East Patchogue, NY, opened in 2014. The Center performs over 5,000 cases annually and currently has five physician providers affiliated with Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates.

“Partnering with a management company to bring our center to the next level was a no-brainer. We had considered it for a while and then decided that it was the right next step for us as we try to navigate the changing health care environment. Since Physicians Endoscopy deals with GI-specific ambulatory endoscopy centers, we know that we’ll get the specialized attention that we need to reach our full potential. Their knowledge and skill in addressing management and regulatory challenges in a changing practice environment will couple well with our experience on the practice front. The partnership will help us further provide high quality, safe, and cost-effective medical care to our patients.” Ravi Singh, MD, GSBE Medical Director.

“The physicians of Brookhaven Gastroenterology Associates are committed to delivering the highest level of patient care while being the low-cost provider in the market.  They sought to align with a corporate partner who shared their values and could provide the expertise to help them accomplish their goals.  The doctors also desired a partner who would work with the local hospital to create a joint venture that aligned both the physicians’ goals and the hospital’s desire to deepen the relationship with the top gastroenterology group in their service area. We look forward to working hand in hand on this venture to grow the business together.” Jeff Fox, VP Business Development, Physicians Endoscopy.

Colon Cancer Awareness: 9th Annual Get Your Rear in Gear Philadelphia

Sunday, March 26, 2017, marks the 9th annual Get Your Rear in Gear (GYRIG) Philadelphia. Philadelphia is the location of one of nearly 50 GYRIG events held annually across the country. The Colon Cancer Coalition, the organization that started Get Your Rear in Gear, held the first GYRIG event in March 2005 in Minneapolis, MN. The initiative began in 2004 as one women’s reaction to the loss of her sister to colon cancer at the age of 46.

Through GYRIG events throughout the year, the Colon Cancer Coalition raises funds to increase screening and awareness for colon cancer. Money stays in the local communities where it is raised. GYRIG Philadelphia has been around since 2009–raising significant money for education, research, screenings, treatment and patient care in the Delaware Valley region.

Physicians Endoscopy has been a long-standing sponsor of the event and is proud to be a primary sponsor of the 2017 event!
