United Digestive announces expansion into Southwest Florida through its partnership with Asociados en Salud Digestiva (AIDH).

Founded in 2003, AIDH’s team of seven gastroenterologists operates clinics in both Cape Coral and Fort Myers, Fla.

“This strategic partnership not only allows us to meet the growing needs of the communities we serve, but also provides us the opportunity to expand our current service offering,” said William Keith, MD of AIDH. “We are excited to collaborate with the United Digestive team and enrich the quality and convenient digestive health care we bring our patients every day.”

“We are proud to finalize our partnership with Associates in Digestive Health,” said Neal C. Patel, MD, Chief Strategy Officer of United Digestive. “This team of gastroenterologists has a strong patient-first reputation in the community which aligns with our core values. By joining forces with them, we aim to affiliate with other like-minded practices in the region.”

“We are thrilled to welcome AIDH to the team and establish this platform in Florida as we continue our national growth,” said Mark Gilreath, Chief Executive Officer of United Digestive.

Through a robust suite of managed services, United Digestive brings operational best practices to GI groups while allowing providers to retain their clinical independence and continued emphasis on patient care.
