OVER 1,400 NURSE ANESTHETISTS DELIVER SAFE AND COST EFFECTIVE ANESTHESIA CARE IN ILLINOIS
CRNAs are highly valued in today’s healthcare environment because they deliver the same safe, high-quality anesthesia care as other anesthesia professionals but at a lower cost, helping to control rising healthcare costs.
CRNAs deliver essential healthcare in dozens of communities and are able to prevent gaps in access to anesthesia services. This is especially true in rural, inner-city and other medically underserved areas of Illinois, from Critical Access Hospitals to Academic Medical Centers.
CRNAs consistently deliver upon their main mission – to achieve a safe anesthesia experience and quality outcome for each patient.
CRNAs are highly educated, advanced practice registered nurses who deliver anesthesia to patients in exactly the same ways, for the same types of procedures and just as safely as physician anesthesiologists. CRNAs are well prepared to respond appropriately in emergency situations.
