Operations Management

The Department of Anesthesia provides clinical and managerial leadership of the anesthetic locations across the institution on a recurring, constant basis.  Department faculty serve as directors of the operating rooms, managing all aspects of surgical case scheduling including daily coordination of cases.  Additionally, the department has built a unique staffing model for incorporating complex algorithms for resource allocation.  The leadership team effectively integrates non-faculty anesthesia providers as members of the care team.  The department's success in clinical operations management resides in the department's ability to foster strong collaborations with peer departments.
