A legacy that leads. A legacy that achieves. A legacy that matters.

It will meet today’s growing need for digestive disease care and research, prepare the next generation of healthcare providers with distinction and model an exemplary approach to treating patients with every consideration for their care and comfort. Help us build state-of-the-art facilities for state-of-the-art care.

From the Chair

Anthony J. DiMarino, Jr., MD

Over the next five years, gastroenterological outpatient medical and surgical care is predicted to grow by an average of 11 percent annually throughout the region. At this time of increased complexity of digestive health conditions, Jefferson has an incomparable opportunity to bring truly integrated clinical knowledge, comprehensive compassionate care and collaborative research and discovery into the creation of a patient-centered digestive health institute for the 21st century.
