Following its 1973 founding in Austin, TX, the Capitol Anesthesiology Association
(CAA) is one of the country’s largest private practices offering anesthesiology services. In addition to providing patient access to over 80 physicians and 130 Certified Registered Nurse Anestesists (CRNAs), Capitol’s network of care extends to over 20 medical facilities in the greater Austin area including major trauma units, high-acuity hospitals, and numerous ambulatory surgery centers.
Capitol’s team of physicians are either currently certified or actively pursing certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology. In addition, many physicians have completed specialised training in technical areas such as pediatric, cardiothoracic, and obstetric anesthesiology in order to expand the range of services available to patients. The result is comprehensive, full-spectrum care that regularly ranks near the top of nationally accepted industry standards.
A critical component of the care provided involves the holistic, team approach of highly trained CRNAs that work hand in hand with anesthesiologists to provide a safe, comfortable experience. This also includes an experienced cohort of registered nurses, anesthesia technicians, and administrative staff that complements the care provided by Capitol’s MDs and CRNAs. The Capitol team works with individuals and families to address questions regarding anesthesia, insurance, or related matters throughout the process. The commitment to top-notch patient care is demonstrated by numerous patient testimonials and CAA’s membership in the Anesthesia Quality Institute (AQI). This allows CAA to not only be a leader in providing high-quality care for patients but also to help others to establish best-practice protocols.
