State-of-the-art GI procedure/interventional endoscopy facility

February 10, 2015

A state-of-the-art suite on the 5th floor of the Center for Care and Discovery (CCD) was the site last year for more than 16,000 specialized GI and CERT procedures.  

“Our 14-room suite, which includes 12 total and two minor procedure rooms, features all new equipment and the best technology in the largest facility of its kind in the region,” says Kelli Goshay, RN, MSN, clinical director, nursing, GI Procedure and Interventional Endoscopy. 

Patients can valet their car at the CCD located at 5700 S. Maryland Avenue and proceed to the sky lobby reception desk on the 7th floor. Each family is given a pager and a passcode to follow the patient’s progress. When the patient is brought to the 5th floor for the procedure, the family can view a status board in the waiting area to see what is happening with their family member. Families also can go into the chapel, gift shop and dining areas, and take advantage of free Wifi in the sky lobby. 

After the procedure, the family is brought to a post-op area to be with the patient and to get test results from the physician. Patients are then given ample time to recover and to have their questions answered by a recovery nurse or physician assistant before being discharged.

Appointments can be made by calling 773-702-6767 for a GI procedure or 773-702-1459 for a CERT procedure.
