The IBD Centre of BC to be part of the new St. Paul’s Hospital
The IBD Centre of BC is a lifeline and support network for people living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The future of Digestive Health
Drs. Brian Bressler and Greg Rosenfeld are gastroenterologists at St. Paul’s Hospital. They’re also the co-founders of the IBD Centre of BC: a lifeline and support network for people living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Bressler and Rosenfeld share a heartfelt compassion for people living with chronic disease and have dedicated their careers to improving the lives of the more than 25,000 British Columbians living with IBD.
Bressler and Rosenfeld are part of a team at St. Paul’s, including the hospital’s colorectal surgeons, who share a vision for a truly comprehensive Digestive Health Centre at the new St. Paul’s Hospital. The new centre would include care for all gastroenterology concerns: IBD, colon cancer screening, colorectal surgery, liver, nutrition counseling, and more. It’s a bold and innovative concept.
The IBD Centre of BC, as a precursor to the fulsome Digestive Health Centre, is already contributing invaluable patient data to the field. Going forward, health care professionals will be able to analyze outcomes and perform quality improvement measures faster than ever before. This will further ensure each patient’s care reflects their individual needs and expectations.
