The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) group is dynamic, talented, and diverse; dedicated to providing excellent, efficient, and compassionate patient care. CRNAs practice in an enriching collaborative practice with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis anesthesiologists as well as three community hospitals and four outpatient surgery centers.

Comprised of more than 175 CRNAs with a broad range of interests, expertise, and specialization, our group provides comprehensive clinical anesthesia at local facilities, including three community hospitals and four outpatient surgery centers. Many CRNAs specialize in cardiothoracic, pediatric, or obstetric anesthesia.

Our CRNAs work in collaboration with the Goldfarb School of Nursing Anesthesia Program to provide clinical education in the operating room setting, and work and learn in tandem with the anesthesiology residents and fellows who have equal access to challenging and complex cases.
