One of the most common reasons surgery centers reach out to us is headaches with scheduling. A lack of control over anesthesia scheduling is incredibly frustrating for an administrator who is doing everything they can to increase surgical volume by adding block time for new or existing surgeons or extending hours to early morning, evening, or weekends. The resistance they get is not only, as you might expect, from the larger hospital-based groups who serve the surgery center as a smaller side business. They also get incredible resistance from per diem and locum tenens hires, who might simply refuse to come in for a 5 a.m. start, or who are not prepared to stay when cases go longer than expected. To do the things they need to do be remain competitive, administrators need flexibility over patient scheduling and that requires an anesthesia team that shares their goals and sense of urgency around growth.
At CarePlus, we offer a straightforward solution. We recruit a highly skilled anesthesia team that acts like part of your team. Finding and screening the right people for your center requires two things:
- The ability to quantify the cultural and clinical needs of a center
- A database of 10s of thousands of candidates that is categorized by both skills sets and scheduling preferences
Our anesthesia providers staff 60,000+ cases a year and we have never missed a day of coverage. 97.5% of patients rated their anesthesia experience as excellent or very good. We attribute much of this success to our recruiting team and their ability to find the right providers that will thrive in your environment, and to our clinical and operational teams who work with the center and the anesthesia providers to seamlessly adapt with your center as you add case volume or operating hours.
Let us help eliminate the drama and help your center today.
