Gastroenterology Services Expanding at Metro Health – University of Michigan Health

Metro Health – University of Michigan Health’s Gastroenterology Services is more than doubling its size in August with the addition of seven physicians joining the practice.

“We are excited to announce an expansion in our gastroenterology services which will benefit all residents in West Michigan,” said President & CEO Mike Faas. “Metro is bringing on two new gastroenterologists who will be employed by the hospital. In addition, five physicians from Michigan Medicine will also join the team and treat patients here in West Michigan.”

Besides adding new physicians, new subspecialty services will be added to provide tertiary care access in Grand Rapids. The subspecialties, which started Aug. 15, include:

  • Hepatology—consultation and management of complex liver patients.
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis)—consultation and/or management of routine patients, medically refractory disease and second opinions.
  • Interventional Endoscopy—consultation for pancreatic or biliary disease, endoscopic ultrasound, routine and complex ERCP services, and endoscopic resection of large polyps or early stage cancers.

“We are so excited to expand our services at Metro Health – University of Michigan Health Gastroenterology in order to meet patient demand,” said Gastroenterologist Ryan Hamby, DO. “Whether you’ve been our patient for years, or are new to us, we are proud of the new services we will be offering in our community.”

Faas added, “The expansion in gastroenterology is just one of many ways we are working to provide services to patients in the areas of critical need while also continuing to create high-quality choice in the marketplace. It’s happening here.”
