Capital Digestive Care Finalizes Partnership with Gastrointestinal & Liver Specialists of Tidewater

The partnership will provide Gastrointestinal & Liver Specialists of Tidewater with immediate access to expand its scope of GI services through Capital Digestive Care's robust infrastructure and state-of-the-art systems, IT capabilities, and resources.

Silver Spring, Maryland, Sept. 28, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Digestive Care (CDC) announced that it had finalized its partnership with Gastrointestinal & Liver Specialists of Tidewater, PLLC (GLST), continuing its growth as the largest private gastroenterology (GI) practice in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

The partnership will leverage PE GI Solutions—a physician-oriented management services organization (MSO)—to achieve economies of scale and growth planning activities to support independent GI care within an ever-evolving healthcare environment.

“CDC is the perfect partner to help us build upon our 25 years of service to our Tidewater area communities,” said Dr. Dan Neumann, President, and CEO of GLST. “Expanding our services and improving patient access through this partnership will allow GLST to continue to thrive within the rapidly changing healthcare environment where the complexity of hospital and payer relationships is just one of the many challenges we’re facing.”

GLST will benefit from CDC’s ability to achieve economies of scale that enhance patient care and reduce costs to patients and insurance companies. A recent analysis of Capital Digestive Care’s historical performance in the state of Maryland qualified the group as highly cost-effective, creating opportunities to participate in value-based payment programs.

“Our goal for growth is to partner with highly-respected practices like GLST that share our values and our desire to provide opportunities for private practices to remain independent,” said Dr. Michael Weinstein, President & CEO of Capital Digestive Care. “Together, our groups will be stronger and better equipped to provide lower-cost, high-quality GI care within the Mid-Atlantic region.”

The partnership with CDC will provide GLST with immediate access to opportunities to expand its scope of GI services through CDC’s robust infrastructure and state-of-the-art systems, IT capabilities, and resources, including infusion and specialized GI laboratory services.

CDC recently announced the expansion and relocation of its laboratory to a new 21,000-square-foot facility encompassing anatomical pathology and molecular diagnostics testing. The Roche Diagnostics Center of Excellence lab will deliver faster results for patients, allow for strategic partnerships focused on developing customized diagnostic tests for GI care, and accommodate future growth of CDC’s patient base.

With 34 board-certified physicians, 12 advanced care providers, and 8 locations, GLST is the Tidewater region’s leading liver and gastroenterology care practice. With the addition of GLST, CDC will double its footprint in the Mid-Atlantic, bringing the number of GI specialists serving the region to 128.
