Our Faculty

In the Anesthesiology Service, our board-certified faculty work closely with nurse anesthetists to provide anesthesia coverage in all areas of Memorial Hospital. We work closely with the departments of surgery and nursing in the management of all activities relating to the operating rooms, Josie Robertson Surgery Center, and remote anesthetizing locations.

Our Critical Care Medicine Service is staffed by board-certified or board-eligible intensivists, critical care medicine–trained nurse practitioners and physician assistants, and graduate medical staff.

Our Pain Service is comprised of board-certified anesthesiologists who have subspecialty certifications in pain management, graduate medical staff, clinical nurse specialists, and nurse practitioners.

The physicians and respiratory therapists who staff our Respiratory Therapy Service work collaboratively with unit-based physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurses to deliver an integrated level of respiratory care.
