(MIAMI, April 2, 2019) — Gastro Health, a leading medical group specializing in digestive health, today announced the acquisition of Southeast Gastro, a gastroenterology group based in Birmingham, Alabama.

Founded in 1976, Southeast Gastro is widely regarded as one of the region’s premier resources for the evaluation and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. The practice is comprised of 20 board-certified gastroenterologists and 17 advanced practitioners. Southeast Gastro operates four main clinic locations, four satellite locations, and provides diagnostic and preventive procedures at three surgery centers throughout the Birmingham metropolitan area.

“We are honored to partner with the exceptional team of physicians and advanced practitioners from Southeast Gastro,” said Gastro Health CEO, Joseph M.

The addition of Southeast Gastro bolsters Gastro Health’s growing network of providers and further enhances its service offerings and collaborative team approach for patients in need of specialized digestive care.

“We have been dedicated to providing a world-class standard of care for more than 40 years and this partnership is an extension of that commitment,” said Miles Gresham, M.D., of Southeast Gastro. “Partnering with Gastro Health strengthens our shared values of quality and compassion that make a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients each and every day.”

Gastro Health continues to attract private practice groups and talented physicians from across the United States and is continually expanding its capabilities to better serve patient needs.
