Tri-City Colonoscopy Clinic (TCC) is excited to announce a new partnership with Cambridge Memorial Hospital (CMH) that will help expand and expedite community access to endoscopy services.
"COVID-19 disrupted our health care system and we were put in a position to find unique ways to help address the wait lists”, said Dr. Augustin Nguyen, gastroenterologist and TCC Medical Director. "As of July 2021, the hospital had a backlog of over 1600 endoscopy cases, which is much more than what it normally has in any given year. By transferring medically appropriate, low-complexity cases to TCC, we can expect to help the hospital offset as many as 500 cases on that list.”
The partnership goes into effect today, August 24, 2021.
