Jamison, PA, September 28th, 2021—PE GI Solutions (formerly Physicians Endoscopy) announced the integration of Gastroenterology and Liver Specialists of Tidewater (GLST) with their strategic partner, Capital Digestive Care. The integration marks the largest transaction in GI in the Mid-Atlantic region.
A key element of this integration is the value of leveraging the PE Practice Solutions platform under PE GI Solutions—a physician-oriented management services organization (MSO). PE GI Solutions partners with GI physicians through its practice and center solutions platforms to streamline operations and diversify and enhance revenue streams.
The MSO will play an integral role in the partnership and transition process, providing GLST with access to Capital Digestive Cares’ robust infrastructure and advanced systems, processes, IT capabilities and resources, along with the expertise of top healthcare executives to help GLST further expand clinical programs and business opportunities.
“Expanding our services and improving patient access through this partnership will allow GLST to continue to thrive within the rapidly changing healthcare environment where the complexity of hospital and payer relationships is just one of the many challenges we’re facing,” said Dr. Dan Neumann, President, and CEO of GLST.
With 34 board certified physicians, 12 advanced care providers, and 8 locations, GLST is the Tidewater region’s leading practice for liver and gastroenterology care. With the addition of GLST, Capital Digestive Care will double its footprint in the Mid-Atlantic region, bringing the number of GI specialists serving the region to 128
GLST has over 25 years of experience and service to the Tidewater area communities. Partnering with Capital Digestive Care will allow GLST to expand and enhance patient care and access through a changing healthcare environment. By utilizing the PE Practice Solutions platform, the integrated group has the ability to achieve economies of scale and support growth planning activities that help independent physician practices thrive.
“PE GI Solutions looks forward to supporting the growth and expansion of Gastroenterology and Liver Specialists of Tidewater and Capital Digestive Care through this integration,” said David Young, President and CEO of PE GI Solutions. “Through our PE Practice Solutions platform, we will provide the group with the resources they need to enhance patient, physician, and staff experiences.”
This integration marks an exciting milestone for Gastroenterology and Liver Specialists of Tidewater, Capital Digestive Care, and PE GI Solutions, demonstrating the continued growth and expansion of the MSO and the continued commitment to deliver quality patient care to the Mid-Atlantic. Through PE GI Solutions’ specialization in business strategies and Capital Digestive Care and GLST’s comprehensive digestive health and laboratory services, the integration is projected to bring much success to all parties.
