NORTHSTAR ANESTHESIA: HEALTH SYSTEM HOSPITALS BENEFIT FROM CHOOSING SAME ANESTHESIA MANAGEMENT COMPANY
NorthStar’s Newest Clients are Muskogee Regional Medical Center and Muskogee Community Hospital of Capella Healthcare System
NorthStar Anesthesia, a national anesthesia management company focused on improving quality, efficiency, and accountability, welcomes Muskogee Regional Medical Center and Muskogee Community Hospital (a campus of Muskogee Regional Medical Center) as new clients within the Capella Healthcare system. With these additions, NorthStar now works with four of the fifteen Capella Healthcare campuses nationwide.
“Hospitals and facility campuses within health systems are recognizing the benefit of utilizing an anesthesia management company that has been successful with other system facilities,” said NorthStar co-founder and CEO Dr. Philip Eichenholz. “While every hospital has unique anesthesia service needs, NorthStar is able to provide anesthesia solutions that work with existing service expectations and culture.”
NorthStar adapts its anesthesia services for hospital’s unique needs by aligning goals with those of the hospital and health system, sharing economic risks and rewards, and attaining accountability through pay-for-performance metrics.
“When multiple hospitals within health systems choose NorthStar, they have the ability to compare similar data on anesthesia’s contribution to OR efficiency, surgical growth, surgeon satisfaction and hospital profitability,” adds Dr. Eichenholz. “This ability to measure success becomes increasingly critical as the Affordable Care Act has ushered in a new era of healthcare requiring hospitals to increase volume and improve quality to remain profitable.”
NorthStar is the fastest growing anesthesia management company in the country, adding 14 new facility partners in 2011, and is on track to exceed that pace in 2012. NorthStar serves multiple hospitals in health systems including Baylor, Community Health Systems, and HCA.
