Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua's New Endoscopy Suite is Now Open!
April 10, 2012
Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua's new 150,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art, ambulatory care center is now home to a new Endoscopy Suite which opened yesterday for patients and providers. With twenty six patients scheduled on opening day, the Endoscopy Suite allows Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua gastroenterologists Jack Bueno, MD, Prasanna Gulur, MD, Srikrishna Nagri, MD, and Timothy Scherer, MD, to perform screenings including colonoscopies, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, and more, on site, at Dartmouth Hitchcock Nashua's new one healthy location.
"The Endoscopy Suite is an outpatient, ambulatory center, which is considered a lower cost option as compared to a hospital setting," said Carol Townsend, Endoscopy Practice Manager. "It is made up of four private pre-op and four private post-op rooms with glass doors for privacy, and two treatment rooms."
If you're over 50, talk to your primary care provider about scheduling a screening colonoscopy. To learn more, contact Dartmouth-Hitchcock Nashua Gastroenterology at (603) 577-4081, or visit Dartmouth-Hitchcock.org.
