“Premier is a great partner. I am very pleased with the open book policy regarding reporting. Premier Anesthesia is the only one of our vendors who provides transparency in the reporting of financial information.”

Premier Anesthesia has identified innovative ways to unlock operating room potential. Its leadership team of former hospital executives, veteran clinicians, practice managers, financial analysts and billing/collections specialists understands the complexities of the operating room environment. This allows Premier to use proprietary tools and technologies to support an evidence-based approach to management, and a commitment to transparent reporting to its clients.

Premier Anesthesia understands how critical surgical services are to the economics of a vibrant medical center, as well as the all-important role of anesthesia services in making surgical services successful. It is important for anesthesia services to be in strategic alignment with the health system’s objectives. Viewing itself as a collaborative partner, not simply a vendor, for the provision of anesthesia, Premier focuses on the satisfaction of the surgeons, anesthesia providers, OR Staff, hospital administration and the patients they serve.
