The Endoscopy Center at Gateway (Edwardsville, Pa.).

The outpatient surgery center was designed to provide endoscopic procedures in a comfortable environment, according to the website. Physicians perform colonoscopies, endoscopies, peg tubes, bandings and dilations. The center is licensed by the Department of Health, accredited by AAAHC and recognized by ASGE for promoting quality in endoscopy.
The staff has more than 50 years of combined GI experience. According to Center Manager Kathryn M. Hummel, “The patients and families who come to the center daily tell us how warm, friendly, efficient and professional the entire staff is. We use CRNAs for our sedation, and again, the patients think this is ‘wonderful.'” The center is at street-level and is handicap-accessible, with plenty of available parking.
