NORTH BERGEN, N.J., Feb. 12, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Physicians Endoscopy and Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC (ACE), in partnership with Holy Name Medical Center, are pleased to announce the acquisition of Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center (formerly Hudson Bergen Medical Center). Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center will formally become a second location for the existing Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC.
Physicians Endoscopy entered into a strategic partnership with ACE in 2012 and has provided support in delivering clinical and operational excellence for the center over the last nine years. The expansion of the existing partnership to include Holy Name Medical Center in the acquisition of Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center was carefully executed and will allow for the center to contribute to Holy Name Medical Center's exemplary community service and outreach efforts.
"We are excited to leverage our existing partnership with Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC and enter into a new partnership with Holy Name Medical Center through this acquisition," says Larry Trenk, Vice President of Operations at Physicians Endoscopy. "We are committed to delivering excellence and safety in gastrointestinal patient care using state-of-the-art endoscopic medical technology and the latest procedural practices at Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center."
This facility accommodates both patients requiring GI care as well as those requiring general surgical procedures, and the partnering physicians are expected to perform over 4,000 procedures annually. The three physicians involved in the partnership to open the center are Dr. Peter Caride, MD; Dr. Juan Gonzalez, MD; and Dr. John Sotiriadis, MD PHD.
"We are dedicated to serving the population with digestive disorders in Hudson and Bergen counties of New Jersey," says Dr. Peter Caride, MD.
Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center is a licensed facility with a long-standing exemplary record of patient safety and regulatory compliance. In 2020, Hudson Bergen Endo Surgical Center underwent an annual onsite review in which a team of Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) reviewers evaluated compliance with Ambulatory Care standards. Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care is expected to resurvey the endoscopy center this summer.
