In addition to diagnostic and therapeutic gastroenterology procedures, the endoscopy staff assists with Bronchoscopy and TEE (Trans-Esophageal Echocardiogram).
Because many procedures require patients to fast, procedures begin as early as 7:30 a.m. to get patients in and out of the hospital early and with less inconvenience or discomfort. These examinations are scheduled by the office of the physician performing the procedure where the doctors personally meet the patient. The staff also provides patient teaching and referrals.
JCMC has achieved the MAGNET award for nursing excellence, the highest honor given for nursing care in the nation. Nurses are well qualified to meet the diverse needs of our patient population. They are compassionate and caring skilled nurses who also participate in community health fair programs.
The unit is conveniently located on the second floor of the main building of the hospital for a fully streamlined experience from registration to discharge.
