Breakthrough for Massachusetts’ GI Physicians

September 15th, 2019 | Uncategorized

Fall River, MA – September 15, 2019: It wasn’t a shot heard round the world but the first procedure on July 22, 2019, in Prima CARE’s new office endoscopy suite was REVOLUTIONARY!

Prima CARE’s CEO, Rich Mateus and GI physicians took the challenge of developing a better solution for their patients – an office endoscopy suite that delivers more convenient care for patients, quality care in their own office setting and better financial results for their growing practice. AND they overcame the Certificate of Need obstacle – a regulation in Massachusetts and 25 other states that restricts the development of new outpatient facilities.

Prima CARE enlisted Rockett Healthcare, LLC to assist in designing, developing, equipping and staffing their fully functional endoscopy suite at their main campus in Fall River, MA. Principal Consultant, Rock Rockett, PhD, has years of experience in developing office endoscopy suites and said: “Prima CARE’s leadership and staff were great to work with in developing the endo suite.”

In their new endoscopy suite, Prima CARE physicians perform colonoscopies and upper endoscopies at their main campus where their gastroenterologists have offices. This innovation very conveniently brings their patients quality care. Physicians are:

David Maddock, M.D. 

Frederick Schnure, M.D. 

Karen Susskind, M.D.

Donald Sutherland, D.O.
