In 1995, nine local gastroenterologists formulated a plan to build an outpatient endoscopy center that would allow them to fill outpatient scheduling needs not available at local hospitals.
The physicians felt that a facility of this type would benefit the citizens of Newark, Delaware, and the surrounding tri-state area by providing high quality, cost-effective outpatient care. In February 1996, The Endoscopy Center of Delaware received its Medicare Certification, and, in 1998, it became JCAHO accredited. Presently, we are accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) and remain Medicare certified. The Endoscopy Center of Delaware is the largest GI ambulatory surgery center in the state.
