At the Gastroenterology (GI) Department of Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital we believe our education and prevention efforts produce a domino effect throughout the community that can help save lives.
We take the time to properly educate our patients and their families to help increase their understanding of disease prevention methods and/or disease processes.
A positive overall patient experience is very important to us and we do everything we can to ensure that occurs. It is our mission and philosophy to provide compassionate care to each patient and their family.
We provide a full range of gastroenterology care and treatment, starting with a state-of-the-art endoscopy Lab, a highly experienced staff, including nurses experienced in endoscopy nursing and training in advanced cardiac life support, board certified gastroenterologists, pulmonologists and surgeons.
Our GI Lab is a self-contained area including private prep rooms, three endoscopy suites, a recovery area and family waiting room. We have high definition monitoring systems in our procedure rooms which gives a clearer image for the detection of polyps. Early detection of polyps can help prevent colon cancer.
Endoscopy services are located on the 2nd floor of Adventist La Grange Memorial Hospital, near the surgery department. We are open Monday thru Friday and, for your convenience, on Saturday as well. Emergency coverage is available 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays.
