An Experienced, Compassionate Staff

Among the experienced, board-certified physicians on staff at Phoenixville Hospital are gastroenterologists, colorectal surgeons and pulmonologists. Our Endoscopy Suite staff, also, includes a team of nine registered nurses (RNs), very seasoned in the care of endoscopy patients, and a receptionist.  All of the RNs are BLS & ACLS certified. All of the RNs go through a rigorous training process, specifically, designed  for the endoscopy procedure room, and the post-anesthesia care (recovery) of patients. Anesthesia care is provided by experienced anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists (also known as CRNAs).
