Gastroenterologists are physician specialists that care for the stomach and digestive system. They use a variety of diagnostic tools including those available in the hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Center and such invasive studies as endoscopy, which are typically provided in the Outpatient Surgical Services Suite.
Endoscopic procedures are done inside Kent Hospital's Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC), weekdays by appointments made through the referring physician's office. The ASC is equipped with eight surgical suites, five expansive suites and three rooms designed specifically for endoscopic technology. Each suite has the latest equipment and is staffed by experienced endoscopy nurses, technicians and assistants.
These procedures are performed by board-certified private physician specialists who are credentialed to the Kent Hospital medical staff and have full access to the Kent Hospital Department of Surgery.
