With three locations—Bayonne Medical Center, Christ Hospital, and Hoboken University Medical Center—CarePoint Health’s Endoscopy Departments are comprised of state-of-the-art endoscopy units equipped with a full array of services. Our gastroenterologists are board-certified and our nursing staff is nationally certified in gastrointestinal nursing. Procedures performed range from screenings to colonoscopy and beyond, including endoscopic ultrasound to diagnose and stage gastrointestinal cancers (especially pancreatic cancer) and ERCP for removal of bile duct stones and palliation of pancreatic cancer.
The Endoscopy Department currently holds the prestigious Endoscopy Unit Recognition Status and is accredited by the American Society of Gastroenterologists (ASGE). The ASGE honors Endoscopy Units that follow specific guidelines on privileging, quality assurance, endoscopy reprocessing, and CDC infection control.
