Anesthesiology – Message from the Chairman
Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at the North Shore-LIJ Health System.
Our mission is threefold. First, we strive to provide a professional, tailored approach to each individual patient -- understanding the uniqueness that defines them -- to provide comfort and safety during procedures. Second, we aim to promote an environment of academic excellence, providing training and oversight to the anesthesia residency program and the medical students of the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine. Finally, our world-class physicians are committed to being on the cutting edge of clinical research, redefining the field with novel approaches to health care delivery.
All members of the anesthesia care team have extensive training and experience. Our team of skilled anesthesia professionals consists of physicians, certified registered nurse anesthetists, nurses and anesthesia technicians. Most of North Shore-LIJ’s anesthesiologists and CRNAs are employed by North American Partners in Anesthesia (NAPA), which is the largest anesthesia group in the U.S.
We encourage you to browse through our website and learn more about the extensive services offered in both the inpatient and outpatient arenas.
