  • Further addressing the special health needs of patients living with digestive disorders, Winthrop will soon be embarking on the construction of a new, expanded Endoscopy Suite. The new space will include six procedure rooms, 15 recovery beds and a larger, more comfortable waiting and reception area for family members. There will also be a separate area for pediatric pre-procedure and recovery.

    Advanced technology will be in place to perform endoscopic ultrasound, a state-of-the-art technique that combines endoscopy and ultrasound to permit visualization of the pancreas and other deep-seated organs, as well as the diagnosis and staging of certain gastrointestinal tumors.

    "The new suite was designed with endoscopy in mind," stated Dr. Grendell. "The facility will provide more access to the Institute's high level of expertise as well as cut down on waiting time. Patients will benefit from the greater comfort and privacy, and the enhanced work environment will provide our skilled staff with all of the tools to deliver the highest level of care."
