NorthStar Anesthesia - The Company


Company Philosophy:

NorthStar provides quality anesthesia care while improving efficiency and accountability. It’s a proven performance-driven approach that’s better for everyone – patients, hospital administrators, surgeons, and anesthesia providers.


Company Mission:

To provide the best clinical care and to help hospitals and surgery centers succeed.



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 150 facility contracts across 21 states and employs more than 2,000 providers nationwide.

NorthStar is backed by world-class financial partners.  NorthStar has a partnership with Cranemere, a holding company that partners with outstanding businesses for the long term.
