Summit Health expands into N.Y. with integration of NYC gastroenterology practice

Summit Health has expanded its care model into the New York region, adding a New York City-based gastroenterology practice, it announced Monday.

The integration of Gotham Gastroenterology brings 16 gastrointestinal specialists and four office and ambulatory surgery center locations — in Midtown and Lower Manhattan, as well as Brooklyn — to Berkeley Heights-based Summit.

“The ever-evolving health care landscape is requiring independent physician groups to make critical decisions that will shape their future and the delivery of patient care,” Dr. Dan Frogel, regional chief medical officer, said in a prepared statement. “And, as Summit Health expands our services to the greater New York region, attracting high-caliber and highly specialized groups like Gotham Gastroenterology is vital to growing our clinical model and ensuring greater access to comprehensive, connected care for the patient.”

The practice will initially adopt the Summit Health brand endorsement, as Gotham Gastroenterology, a Summit Health company.
