NorthStar Anesthesia, a national anesthesia management company focused on improving quality, efficiency and accountability, added 14 new facility partners in 2011 and is on track to exceed that pace in 2012.
“Our message to hospitals and outpatient surgical facilities is that today’s anesthesia model is broken, and we know how to fix it,” says NorthStar CEO, Philip Eichenholz, MD. “I’m proud of our growth, but adding clients is not proof that we can deliver on that promise. A better gauge of our anesthesia management abilities is the fact that, since founding, we have renewed or extended 100 percent of our contracts.”
NorthStar currently serves 44 facilities in six states. As it grows, NorthStar is focused on leveraging its resources to benefit its network of partners.
“We deliver value that goes way beyond the financial economies of scale lauded by our competitors,” adds Dr. Eichenholz. “We deliver live data and actionable intelligence related to OR management and clinical best practices which we uncover with our award winning anesthesia EMR system and through our leadership teams at 40 plus leading hospitals.”
NorthStar’s physicians and certified registered nurse anesthetists also benefit from NorthStar Anesthesia’s growing hospital network. The company currently employs nearly 500 clinicians and hopes to become the largest single specialty employer of anesthesia professionals in the future.
“Our size creates career development and relocation options for our clinicians that cannot be matched,” adds NorthStar president Neil Neal. “We also provide the tools and ongoing training to ensure all our clinicians are at the forefront of their field not only in terms of clinical ability, but also in providing anesthesia leadership to the hospital and its surgeons.”
