Gastro Health has acquired the Gastrointestinal Center of Hialeah, a Joint Commission accredited, Florida-licensed ambulatory surgery center (ASC), that offers outpatient gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures in a comfortable and convenient facility.

Located at 135 W. 49th Street in Hialeah, Florida, the ASC features three operative rooms outfitted with new, state-of-the-art equipment. Patients will be able to access services such as diagnostic and screening colonoscopy, colonoscopy with biopsy, upper endoscopy, EGD with biopsy, colon with cautery and snare polypectomy and hemorrhoid ligation, all in a relaxing environment in which patient privacy and comfort are ensured.

Gastro Health’s Hialeah ASC will utilize advanced technology and draw from the expertise of experienced gastroenterologists including Orlando Torres, M.D., Roberto De J. Fernandez, M.D., F.A.C.G., Sergio Rodriguez, M.D., Carlos Ramos, M.D., and Jose Lavergne, M.D.

“Gastro Health has been looking forward to continuing to elevate the services we provide by optimizing our business strategy,” said Alejandro Fernandez, Gastro Health Chief Executive Officer. “By adding an ASC to couple with our existing gastroenterology practices, we will be able to provide comprehensive and complete gastrointestinal care.”

“By joining Gastro Health, we will be able to bring our center to the next level while navigating through a changing health care environment,” said Torres. “Ultimately, it’s our patients who will benefit most as they will receive specialized attention from a GI-specific ambulatory endoscopy center, as well as through our practice.”

Gastro Health is Florida’s largest gastroenterology provider and this center is now one of 27 Gastro Health locations throughout the state.
