North Bergen, NJ, March 26, 2021—PE GI Solutions and Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC (ACE) have acquired Hudson Bergen Medical Center, LLC. The surgical center has officially become a second location for the existing Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC and has formally been renamed Hudson Bergen Endoscopy and Surgical Center, LLC.

PE GI Solutions entered into a strategic partnership with ACE in 2012 and has provided support in delivering clinical and operational excellence for the center over the last nine years. The expansion of the existing partnership with ACE through the acquisition of Hudson Bergen Endoscopy and Surgical Center, LLC was spearheaded by the six physician partners of ACE’s first location: Jeffrey M. Raskin, MD; Wayne D. Siegel, MD; Harry Snady, MD PhD, FACG; Paul M. Stoopack, MD; Harold G. Tepler, MD; and Mauricio Zapiach, MD, FACG.

This second location accommodates both patients requiring GI care as well as those requiring general surgical procedures, and the partnering physicians of the second location are expected to perform over 4,000 procedures annually. The partnering physicians of the second ACE location are Peter Caride, MD; Juan Gonzalez, MD; and John Sotiriadis, MD PhD.

“PE GI Solutions and Ambulatory Center for Endoscopy, LLC leveraged and expanded on our existing strategic partnership through this acquisition,” says Larry Trenk, Vice President of Operations at PE GI Solutions. “We are committed to delivering excellence and safety in gastrointestinal patient care using state-of-the-art endoscopic medical technology and the latest procedural practices at Hudson Bergen Endoscopy and Surgical Center, LLC.”

Hudson Bergen Endoscopy and Surgical Center, LLC is a licensed facility with a long-standing exemplary record of patient safety and regulatory compliance. In 2018, the surgical center underwent an extensive onsite review in which a team of Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) reviewers evaluated compliance with Ambulatory Care standards. Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care is expected to resurvey the endoscopy center this summer.
