ENT Services Now Offered at SJE


Saint Joseph East

KentuckyOne Health employees will benefit from the opening of the new Saint Joseph Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Center, set for March 4, at Saint Joseph East. The ENT center will provide full-service otolaryngology services, including diagnosis and treatment of conditions relating to the head and neck, including sinusitis, chronic ear infections, hearing loss, problems with balance, sleep apnea, allergies, snoring and more.

Ron Shashy, MD, who is contracting with KentuckyOne Health, will be providing professional services to the center. Dr. Shashy trained at the Mayo Clinic and is board-certified in otolaryngology and sleep medicine. He has lived in Lexington for the past seven years. He is married with two children.

“Some of my goals include providing ease of patient access and scheduling, exceptional care and service satisfaction to all patients, while offering the latest, most advanced, minimally-invasive technology,” the physician said.

Director of Surgical and Procedural Growth for Saint Joseph East Anna Bennett is excited to see ENT services provided at the hospital, she said.

“It’s been several years since an ENT physician had an office or performed surgery at Saint Joseph East. The new ENT center will be of great benefit to our employees because it’s conveniently located at Saint Joseph East, providing ease of access for our surrounding Saint Joseph facility employees.”

Dr. Shashy will see patients in the 120 North Eagle Creek Drive building, Suite 102, which is next to Saint Joseph East. He will perform procedures at Saint Joseph East.

The ENT center is now scheduling appointments.
