We are dedicated to providing high-quality, cost-efficient, safe care to every patient, every time, always. We partner with our contracted facilities to improve operational performance and reduce cost. Further, we conduct clinical research to help advance the safety of our specialty.
We care for more than 31,000 patients annually in our Maryland and District of Columbia practice locations. We perform 12% of all outpatient Gastro, Colon and Rectal anesthesia cases in the state. In fact, we have performed more than 275,000 outpatient procedures since our inception in 2011.
Our high-quality board certified physician anesthesiologists and licensed certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) provide safe and compassionate care to our patients. Many of our providers have worked with us for many years.
We're taking significant measures to ensure the safety and comfort of our patients during in-person visits at our endoscopy centers.
Delivering exceptional care and infection control is part of our daily practice and way of life for our anesthesia providers. Our patient centers are controlled spaces where the most stringent precautions are always in place. In addition, our anesthesia providers have extensive experience in infection control and managing disease. We have implemented new measures to ensure your comfort and safety during your outpatient procedure.
We are also doing our part to halt the spread of coronavirus with robust testing. For your safety and that of our team members, we are testing all patients for COVID-19 before every procedure. Additionally, all of our anesthesia providers are also tested on a regular basis.
