Thanks to the generosity of The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care, Tufts Medical Center and The Foundation recently opened The Marlene Neely Center for Digestive Health at Tufts MC.
As the new home for our Gastroenterology clinic and procedural suite, this new center enhances the patient experience through expanded services with a focus on prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gastrointestinal illnesses. In particular, the center provides quality access to gastrointestinal cancer preventative care and treatment. Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the US and this country’s third most common cancer.
The center was designed by patients, families and staff to be efficient and patient-focused. It allows our teams to provide one convenient, accessible location for all GI services including clinical exams, screening colonoscopies and complex GI procedures like Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-pancreatography (ERCP).
