Marlborough, MA (October 11, 2012) – Marlborough Hospital, in partnership with UMass Memorial Medical Center, has expanded its surgical offerings to help bring the most advanced minimally invasive and general surgery services to the region. To facilitate this growth, Marlborough Hospital welcomes Philip Cohen, MD

“We believe in delivering the very best and the safest health care to our patients by pairing excellent service and the most highly skilled physicians and staff,” explained Karen Moore, president and CEO of Marlborough Hospital. “As part of the expansion of our surgical offerings, I am happy to welcome Dr. Cohen to our team. He is part of a physician group that makes up one of the largest, most experienced teams of fellowship-trained minimally invasive surgeons in Central Massachusetts.”
With the addition of Dr. Cohen--a general surgeon who specializes in digestive diseases, weight loss surgery, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as well as small bowel and hernia conditions--patients will now have easy access to a full spectrum of board-certified surgical experts. Dr. Cohen’s distinct surgical expertise in digestive disorders complements our experts in the fields of breast surgery; colon and rectal surgery; general surgery; plastic surgery; thoracic surgery; vascular surgery; and wound care.
Patients can also benefit from the hospital’s tiered insurance status. Marlborough Hospital has been rated and recognized by insurance companies for providing quality, cost-effective care and is, therefore, able to charge lower deductibles and co-pays for many diagnostic and surgical procedures.
“In essence it means that our patients are able to access high-quality health care, close to home, but without stretching their pocketbooks,” continued Moore.
