Academic Medical Centers

Academic leadership. Scholarly research. Efficient perioperative management.

As you balance special commitments to scholarly research and student instruction, you also struggle to realize the same cost-saving opportunities as your non-academic counterparts. You’re expected to foster exemplary learning environments and maintain high levels of patient care, but with a limited budget. NorthStar Anesthesia understands your challenges, and we have solutions that enhance your academic mission.

Founded by anesthesia care providers, NorthStar has an in-depth knowledge of this medical specialty and the critical role that it plays in a properly functioning OR/surgical center.
