Gastro Health, a national leading medical group specializing in digestive and liver health, has finalized a partnership with Springfield Gastroenterology in Ohio. This will be Gastro Health’s fourth partnership within the state since late 2020.
Springfield Gastroenterology is joining with three physicians and one advanced practice provider (APP). The practice is committed to putting the patient first by providing excellent care and personal attention. The agreement also includes the state-of-the-art endoscopy center, Gastro Care, located on the same premises as the clinic. Gastro Care is fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC).
“Our group has been tracking the changes in healthcare over the years and those specifically within the GI space,” said Ajit Challa, MD, physician partner and founder of Springfield Gastroenterology. “Gastro Health was the best fit for us as a partner to continue growing and strengthening our practice.”
“Springfield Gastroenterology is a strong practice that shares our mission for patient care,” said Gastro Health CEO Joseph Garcia. “We’re excited to welcome them into the Gastro Health team in Ohio.”
This latest acquisition by Gastro Health is part of a continued national growth and expansion period in the single-specialty gastroenterology sector over the last several years. Gastro Health has a presence in seven states – Florida, Alabama, Washington, Virginia, Ohio, Maryland, and Massachusetts – with over 380 physicians and 150 locations consisting of medical offices, infusion centers, imaging services, and a specialty pharmacy. Additionally, Gastro Health owns and operates endoscopy centers in five of the seven states and operates pathology and anesthesia services.
