Today CHISTUS Santa Rosa Health System announced it has entered into an exclusive partnership for anesthesia services with STAR Anesthesia.
STAR Anesthesia is a physician owned and operated medical group that provides anesthesia services throughout San Antonio, Houston, and the surrounding areas. STAR’s providers have been a part of the south Texas health care family for over 30 years. Comprised of more than 200 providers, they offer anesthesia services across the full spectrum of specialty needs in more than 65 facilities. STAR requires all of their anesthesiologists to be ACLS trained and board certified/board eligible.
The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, supported by its partners, STAR Anesthesia and Texas Children’s Hospital, is fully dedicated to providing quality and timely cardiac sedation and general pediatric anesthesia coverage with no interruption in coverage; assuring all cases are professionally managed in a timely manner. Like The Children’s Hospital, CHRISTUS Hospitals within the exclusive partnership expect no interruption in coverage and quality, timely services.
STAR Anesthesia brings to our ministry 24/7 anesthesia coverage and pre-operative anesthesia assessments; quality, safety, and efficiency metrics in the anesthesia service; continuous coverage for post-operative patient recovery and support in providing efficient and highly responsive scheduling of surgery cases, and directing an organized anesthesia service that ensures high quality, safe and efficient anesthesia care.
CHRISTUS Santa Rosa and STAR Anesthesia will work together diligently to minimize any potential impact this change may have on select surgeons and anesthesiologists practicing throughout our CHRISTUS facilities.
CHRISTUS is dedicated to extending the healing ministry of Jesus Christ to those we are privileged to serve. This partnership, with STAR Anesthesia, will help us provide excellent care to our patients and support to our surgeons.
