CAMC Memorial Hospital endoscopy moves to provide more efficient patient care
The endoscopy department at CAMC Memorial Hospital provides diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for patients with conditions or diseases of the gastrointestinal and respiratory systems. The department relocated to the second floor earlier this month.
The new space has seven functioning procedure rooms. One room has a dedicated bronchoscopy suite with radiology capabilities for allowing physicians to look inside of patients' lungs, one is a stationary radiology room and the additional five are standard procedure rooms for things such as upper gastrointestional and colonoscopy procedures. Anesthesia services are available in the department for procedures requiring deep sedation. An eight-bed recovery bay is an increase from six in the former space. The department is committed to providing the highest quality care based on national standards.
