Our ministry is committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients and our community. That commitment also requires that CHI St. Vincent consistently looks for opportunities to expand or consolidate services in order to offer the greatest value to those patients while also best utilizing the resources available to us. As part of that process, our ministry has decided to close the Endoscopy Center at CHI St. Vincent Little Rock Diagnostic Clinic (LRDC) and consolidate those services into the well-established and respected ECA (Endoscopy Center of Arkansas) at 1024 N University Ave in Little Rock. This will take effect on July 13, 2021.
All CHI St. Vincent and EngageMed coworkers currently employed with the LRDC Endoscopy Center will have the option to apply for vacant positions within our ministry and it is our hope and intention that they will all choose to remain a part of the CHI St. Vincent family. We’re also excited to announce that Dr. Naga Saranya Addepally will continue to have a clinic presence at LRDC and will perform procedures at ECA.
We are incredibly proud of and grateful for the compassionate care our coworkers have provided our community through their work at the Endoscopy Center. Please join us in making them feel welcome as they take on new roles elsewhere within our ministry. This transition will allow us to continue providing exceptional care for our patients while also exploring other opportunities to grow our ministry.
