Carolina Mountain Gastroenterology in Hendersonville, N.C., and Asheville (N.C.) Gastroenterology Associates merged into a single entity which is called Digestive Health Partners, according to a Blue Ridge Now report.
Here are four key notes:
1. The practice includes 17 physicians from Asheville Gastroenterology Associates and five from Carolina Mountain Gastroenterology.
2. The physician partners hope the merger will allow them to offer high quality gastroenterology care in a larger geographical region.
3. The practices have continued to provide the same care and processes as before the merger, which was finalized on Jan. 1, and patients still have access to their current physician.
4. Both practices include an endoscopy center where the physicians perform outpatient procedures.
