2013 Press Releases
Avista's Endoscopy Suites Recognized for Excellence
08/27/2013

(LOUISVILLE)—The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) has recognized Avista’s endoscopy suites for their quality endoscopic services.

Avista’s GI Lab features private, state-of-the-art endoscopic suites dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of digestive disorders—from gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) to colon cancer. Endoscopes are flexible tubes with a video camera that is used to obtain images of the digestive tract.

Dr. Scott Hallgren, FACP, and Dr. Ariana Greenwood, both gastroenterologists with Northwest Gastroenterology Specialists, lead Avista’s digestive care services.

Avista was one of the first hospitals in the region to obtain the Olympus 190 high-definition endoscopic imaging system. By producing notably clearer images, this system allows physicians to see areas of concern previously difficult to detect—helping to catch problems early and improve outcomes.

ASGE has designed the only national program recognizing quality and safety in the practice of GI endoscopy. Recipients of this award must meet strict standards demonstrating quality and competency.

To schedule an appointment with a GI physician call 303-269-2085, or, to learn more about Avista’s digestive care program, visit avistahospital.org/gi-lab .
