NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- East Side Endoscopy and Pain Management Center (ESNY) helped promote awareness of the safe, affordable, exceptional care that ASCs provide by hosting State Assemblymember Harvey Epstein, from New York's 74th district, on Monday, September 17, 2018. The visit allowed the center to educate key policy and decision makers about the benefits of ASCs and was an extension of celebrating National ASC Month held in August.
Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) recognize the high-quality care they provide to surgical patients across the country—giving community members and public officials an inside look at the patient-centered services ASCs offer and insight as to why more patients and doctors are choosing these medical facilities for their health care needs. For many patients, ASCs offer a better way to have outpatient surgery. These physician-driven facilities put the patient—not the institution—at the center of the care.
"We are honored that Assemblymember Harvey Epstein has taken an interest in the center, and we enjoyed showing him around, as well as meeting our staff and providers. We all work very hard to provide the highest quality care to our community of patients and appreciate the opportunity to discuss the value East Side Endoscopy and Pain Management Center brings to the area with this distinguished public official," said Teresa Chaisson, Director of Clinical Support, Physicians Endoscopy.
The center, which began operations in 2010, has serviced over 10,000 New York patients in 2017 alone. East Side Endoscopy and Pain Management Center is a New York State certified ambulatory surgical center accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care specializing in providing the highest quality gastrointestinal endoscopy and pain management services to our patients and surrounding community. The atmosphere at ESNY is welcoming, more comfortable and efficient than the traditional settings found in hospital and office environments. The center provides personalized attention from a caring and highly skilled staff of physicians, nurses and specially trained technicians who strive to meet and maintain the highest standards of safety and infection control. Affiliated with Mount Sinai Beth Israel, ESNY is on the forefront of clinical integration initiatives with ongoing and active programs designed to promote quality, cost containment and community outreach.
