CRS Breaks Ground On New Mechanicsville Medical Center

Colon and Rectal Specialists, CRS, is pleased to announce construction on a new state-of-the art medical and surgery center in Mechanicsville’s Bell Creek Medical Park.

The center, conveniently located off Pole Green Road, will feature several private endoscopy suites and can care for more than 50 patients per day.

The endoscopy suites are owned and operated by CRS physicians who are committed to providing patients with the highest quality of care. Owning the suites allows CRS to provide a unique patient experience.

CRS currently operates private endoscopy suites in Stony Point and Hanover and the new Bell Creek center will offer the same conveniences such as easy on-site parking, shorter wait and surgery times.

The atmosphere in the CRS suites is quiet, friendly and compassionate, so it is much easier for patients to get comfortable before, and during, their procedure. Also, each patient’s doctor is always nearby, if not 20 feet away, which makes having a medical procedure or outpatient surgery much easier than it would be in a traditional hospital setting.

“Our patients who have to undergo surgery, or a simple screening colonoscopy, find that having the procedure in our private endoscopy suites means more privacy, comfort and convenience,” said Dr. Andy Vorenberg.

Construction is scheduled to begin in July 2021 with an expected completion date in early 2022. The new Bell Creek facility will feature multiple private rooms and patients can expect dimmable lights, private bathrooms in each exam room, along comfortable waiting room areas for families.

Dr. Vorenberg In The Richmond Times Dispatch

March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month dedicated to awareness, education and the importance of  colonoscopy screenings to prevent colon cancer before it starts.

Colorectal cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the United States but when caught early it is highly treatable. An estimated 60% of the deaths attributed to colon cancer could be prevented with routine screenings, like colonoscopies. Dr. Vorenberg, and all the physicians at CRS, are dedicated to educating patients, and the community, about the importance of simple screening tests that could save many lives.
