Painless Transition Takes Experience

A Hierarchy of Needs
The first step is to ensure desired clinical coverage while we establish strong relationships with your administration.
Working collaboratively with you, we instill mission critical processes and identify local leaders who can begin to implement the NorthStar culture and systems while retaining most of your current staff.
A Network of Leaders
Our regional and national leadership organizational structure provides support and guidance for local leaders as they implement new processes and procedures.
The result is a stronger, more unified team of clinicians and a more efficient anesthesia department.
