Moon Township, PA, (November 30, 2009) – Heritage Valley Health System is pleased to announce the opening of their new Endoscopy Center, located on the second floor of the new building addition at the Heritage Valley Beaver campus.
The Heritage Valley Endoscopy Center offers patients the newest innovative endoscopy procedures in a comfortable, modern facility and is staffed with a team of expert physicians, nurses, and technicians.
The Endoscopy Center provides the individualized attention of a specialized treatment facility along with the reassurance that emergency clinical experts are located in the same building. The Endoscopy Center provides continuity of care with other services delivered at Heritage Valley Beaver and all diagnostic tests and screenings are recorded in Heritage Valley’s Electronic Medical Record.
The new Endoscopy Center provides a fully upgraded suite of equipment and patient care areas. The new fluoroscopy room with highly specialized equipment enables patients receiving endoscopy radiological fluoroscopy examination to remain within the Endoscopy Center rather than having to move to another area within the hospital.
The Center treats patients with the utmost privacy with 14 private patient treatment bays for pre-procedure assessment and post-procedure recovery. Each bay contains advanced monitoring equipment, provider call systems and overhead televisions. Family accommodations are provided in each bay for a family member or significant other to be with the patient prior to and after procedure.
The Endoscopy Center has regular scheduled daily appointments with 24/7 emergency staff to meet all patient needs. A vast array of screening and diagnostic endoscopy services are available including colonoscopy, esophagoscopy, fluoroscopy, and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP).
