MELVILLE, N.Y., March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), one of the leading single-specialty anesthesia and perioperative management companies in the US, welcomes the anesthesia clinicians of CalvertHealth Medical Center to NAPA’s expanding Mid-Atlantic services region. As NAPA employees, the clinical team previously associated with Chesapeake Anesthesia Associates will continue to serve CalvertHealth’s community hospital in Prince Frederick, Maryland, where they provide anesthesia for approximately 4,000 surgeries annually. CalvertHealth is an acute care, not-for-profit independent medical center that has served Calvert County and surrounding communities with quality healthcare since 1919.

CalvertHealth President and CEO Dean Teague, FACHE, said, “NAPA’s scale, regional structure, and passion for quality and the patient experience makes it an ideal anesthesia partner for CalvertHealth. We eagerly anticipate the benefits and robust resources that aligning with NAPA will bring to our hospital, including its data-driven Quality Improvement program, leadership development initiatives, and proprietary technology. NAPA continuously promotes patient, clinician, and surgeon satisfaction.”

Rafael Cartagena, MD, NAPA’s Senior Vice President of Clinical Operations, Mid-Atlantic Region, added, “NAPA has invested in building a regional infrastructure and operating platform that supports clinicians and hospital administrators with anesthesia, quality, compliance, reporting, and revenue cycle management expertise. In our collaborative culture, information and data is freely shared with our employees and partners to streamline processes and produce superior service experiences.  We look forward to helping CalvertHealth maximize its opportunities and performance as a NAPA partner.”

Founded by a New York-based community hospital anesthesiology group in 1986, NAPA now serves more than one million patients per year at hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based practices in 11 states. Becker’s Hospital Review has recognized NAPA as one of the “150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare” for three consecutive years; and in May 2018, Black Book Market Research announced that NAPA was the top-ranked anesthesia department outsourcing vendor.

“We are delighted to welcome CalvertHealth’s anesthesia services team to NAPA, which shares the hospital’s deep commitment to quality, safety, and patient-centric care,” said John F. Di Capua, MD, CEO of NAPA. “As a clinician-led company, NAPA is fully dedicated to empowering clinicians with technology, tools and training that enables our employees to deliver exceptional experiences for every patient, every day.  We believe that investing in our clinicians’ personal and professional development, as well as leading-edge innovation, positions NAPA to produce optimal outcomes for our patients and hospital partners, creating value for all stakeholders in the current healthcare marketplace.”
