Hospital Needed Fast Solution with Quick Results

When you want change to happen, yesterday isn't soon enough.

Current Anesthesia Provider Lacking Service, Leadership and Compliance

By the time the CEO of a hospital in Washington State reached out to Premier Anesthesia, there was much that needed to be fixed.

The independent contractors who provided anesthesia services did not work with each other, the hospital or surgeons. Scheduling surgeries was immensely difficult, and keeping the OR schedule on track was even harder. No one was a leader, there was no strategic planning and patient service wasn't a big priority. Something had to be done, but what? The problems seemed like a mountain no one could climb.

Then, a board member - the CEO of a hospital with a seven-plus-year relationship with Premier Anesthesia - recommended this CEO contact them. His call set in motion a tornado of activity. Premier Anesthesia sent a high-level team: President Kerry Teel, VP and Chief Development Officer Wally Anderson and VP of Medical Affairs Dr. Jerry Titel. They made an initial presentation on how Premier Anesthesia could help.
