Who We Are

R.A. leadership has over 40 years of experience in the operating room and on the business side of healthcare as well. In Summer 2010 we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of R.A. Our management team includes hospital executives, experienced anesthesiologists, practice managers and perioperative directors. These multiple healthcare backgrounds allow R.A. to translate anesthesia service into a comprehensive support system for institutions.

Philosophy

R.A.’s philosophy is based on delivering the highest quality care to our five customers:

    1: The Patient – Our number one priority is always the patient. Plain and simple – Patients matter most!
    2: The Surgeon – R.A. professionals take the lead to ensure that procedures are on-time and that surgeons will have the necessary resources. If needed, our site directors are the communicators with physicians. In the Operating Room, R.A. physicians continue to provide support to the surgeon so that together we deliver the highest level of attention and care to the patient.
    3: The Administration – Jointly, we work with the administration of each facility to enhance the quality of service and care. We encourage our physicians and leadership to be active participants on Boards and Committees of each hospital. Our leadership knows the importance and maintains constant open lines of communication with the Administration of each facility. If there is ever an issue, we are always available to quickly address and resolve.
    4: The Perioperative Staff – Our professionals work as a team in a friendly environment with all perioperative staff, from housekeepers to nurses. We know that in the communities we serve, each and every person on the team matters. Our patient tomorrow may be our team member, their friend or loved one. We show respect and gratitude to all who work with us for ensuring the job is done well and with compassion.
    5: Peers – Though it may sound cliché, our professionals check their egos at the door when it comes to working with their peers. All R.A. staff work respectfully with each other to make certain the highest level of care is provided in a positive atmosphere. At each facility we have a site director who oversees all activities – this guarantees that no one is left on their own without proper support and relief. We have experienced tremendous growth in the last 3 years and we still maintain a turnover rate that is the lowest in the industry (under one percent).
Principles and Performance Improvement

R.A. has always been guided by these five principles when providing anesthesia care and services:

Quality

Providing quality care and service is so important to us that we established our very own Performance Improvement Program which is well ahead of industry standards.

Leadership

R.A. physicians provide leadership in every facility which creates more efficient Surgical Units.

Experience

R.A. possesses an award-winning staff with the strength of over 40 years in delivering anesthesia care.

Flexibility

Nearly 100 physicians, 30 CRNA’s and an on-call “flex” team allow R.A. to meet all levels of volume in any and all settings on a daily basis.

Compassion

Our number one concern is our patients care and safety.

Performance Improvement Program

Our track record is impressive, but R.A. is always striving to improve performance. The Performance Improvement Program, created by R.A., is ahead of industry-leading standards and features regular chart reviews, peer assessment and Bi-Annual performance evaluations. The program also monitors patient treatment, including whether or not treatment results in patient discomfort, or requires additional medical attention. The Performance Improvement Program helps us continually monitor and evaluate the quality of anesthesia services provided to all patients at the facilities we serve.
