ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program
Known as the leader in setting standards for excellence in gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, ASGE has designed the only national program recognizing quality and safety in the practice of GI endoscopy. The ASGE Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program is open to all settings where GI endoscopy is practiced, including office-based endoscopy units, hospital-based endoscopy units, and stand-alone ambulatory endoscopy or surgery centers. To date, over 450 units have received this prestigious recognition. View a list of Endoscopy Unit Recognition Recipients here.

- Gain recognition among healthcare professionals, public and private regulatory bodies and patients as a unit dedicated to quality care
- Prepare to meet the changing expectations of public and private regulatory bodies
- Promote improvement and create more uniformity in your practice
