    NorthStar Anesthesia Overview


    NorthStar Anesthesia was founded in 2004 by an anesthesiologist and CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist) that saw firsthand the frustrations and daily challenges caused by the traditional anesthesia care model.  


    What if they could fix the broken anesthesia care model? What if anesthesia contractors stopped being absentee managers? What if patients, surgeons, providers and hospital administrators were treated more like customers and less like cogs in the system? The answer was NorthStar.  NorthStar Anesthesia is an anesthesia management company that provides anesthesia services to large and small hospitals, surgery centers, hospital administrators, surgeons, anesthesia providers and patients.


    Today, NorthStar has over 180 facility contracts across 21 states and employs more than 2,500 providers nationwide.
