New Endoscopy Suite Opens at Baystate Franklin Medical Center

September 14, 2017

Greenfield, MA  –

Baystate Franklin Medical Center announced the opening of its brand new outpatient endoscopy suite earlier this month. The investment and upgrade to this dedicated unit – located in the new surgery center, will result in enhanced options and comfort for patients as well as access to state of the art technology.

Jill Powell, Nurse Manager of Surgical Services, is thrilled about the expansion and renovation; “Not only is the space huge, but we have brand new equipment, and the latest scope technology."

"We are pleased to be able to offer more procedures each day while also accepting more complex cases. Patients can have procedures done at Baystate Franklin now that they may have otherwise had to travel for,” Powell continued. “We are looking forward to expanding our options for patient care in endoscopy and the surgery center as a whole. We have exciting plans for future growth and are thrilled to be able to offer our community the option for these services locally.

In addition to the modern space, anesthesia is now available on the unit, providing a more comfortable environment and efficient procedures. Previously, patients would be transported to the operating room for anesthesia and monitoring. With twenty patient bars, a comfortable space is provided for pre-and post-op observation and recovery.
