A Highly Productive Year for Gastroenterology-Hepatology

Gastroenterology & Hepatology — has been highly productive over the past year. During FY 2015, the division saw an 18% increase in patient volume and a substantial expansion of all its clinical activities, due largely to the addition of new faculty members. They include Nicholas Intagliata, MD, in hepatology; Ashley (Mary) Overby, NP, in the inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) clinic; and Daniel Strand, MD, in the advanced therapeutic endoscopy (interventional) area.

At the start of FY 2016 (i.e., summer 2015), additional faculty members joined GI’s ranks: Andrew Copland, MD, a former UVA fellow who specializes in IBD and small bowel disease; another addition in hepatology, Zachary Henry, MD (also a former UVA fellow); and Cynthia Yoshida, MD, whose focus is general GI and endoscopy. With these new faculty members, as well as new clinical service locations, including at the Monticello Community Surgery Center and in the Outpatient Surgery Center at UVA’s Battle Building, the division expects to see continued expansion in patient volume and clinical activity in the coming year.
