Medical Center Endoscopy Patient Safety and Quality of Care

Providing safe patient care is the highest priority of Medical Center Endoscopy

We are proud of our patient safety and quality record. In the 20 years since opening, we have provided high quality patient centered gastrointestinal care to over 250,000 patients. Our physicians are active members of our Quality & Safety Committee and Governing Board for the center. These committees have internal oversight of policies and procedures to ensure our facility continually provides the highest quality health care to our patients.

In developing the center, our physician owners intentionally chose to partner with exceptional nationally recognized organizations including Houston Methodist Hospital and Surgery Partners. Both organizations bring years of operational and clinical expertise and oversight in the areas of patient quality and safety. This partnership also allows immediate access to hospital care in close proximity in the rare event a complication arises during surgery.

Medical Center Endoscopy follows nationally recognized guidelines for quality, safety, and infection control including

American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE)
American Society of Anesthesiology (ASA)
Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates (SGNA)
Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)

In addition to the mandatory self-reporting to Texas Department of State Health Services and AAAHC required to maintain our licensing and accreditation status, we voluntarily report our safety and quality though GIQuic Registry, Quality Net, and National Healthcare Safety Network.

By delivering the best quality care available, our dedicated physicians and employees are proud to have earned and maintained the following honors:

  • Licensed by Texas Department of State Health Services since 1998
  • Accredited by Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC) since 2004
  • Awarded Endoscopic Unit Recognition for Promoting Quality in Endoscopy by the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy annually since 2009

If you have specific safety concerns or want find out more about our quality please feel free to discuss this with you physician or contact our Administrator, Karen Schescke at 713-790-7931.
