Murray-Calloway County Hospital recognizes 2021 National CRNA Week and the Murray Anesthetists Group (MAG) for providing care for the patients at MCCH.

Experts You Trust. Care You Count On. 

“Murray Anesthetists Group would like to thank Murray-Calloway County Hospital for their continued support and allowing us the opportunity to provide anesthesia services. We consider ourselves lucky to be a part of such a unique community hospital that provides patient care with a more personal touch. We have a young group of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists that enjoy Murray and the surrounding area. We all have families and are involved in many community activities. We enjoy participating in the growth of Murray and Murray-Calloway County Hospital. 

Murray Anesthetists Group’s goal is to provide the best anesthesia care for our patients. In addition to traditional anesthesia services, we specialize in tailoring anesthesia to our patient’s needs.  We offer various nerve blocks and other techniques enabling our patients the option of quicker discharges and better pain control. We take pride in hearing back from our patients and knowing we had a positive impact on their surgical experience. We look forward to providing anesthesia services for our patients many years to come,” said Brian Daniel, Nurse Anesthetist with MAG.

Since 2000, National CRNA Week has been the AANA’s annual celebration of the nation’s nearly 57,000 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and Student Registered Nurse Anesthetists who safely and cost-effectively provide more than 49 million anesthetics each year.

This CRNA Week, we want to reflect on their heroic work and look forward to a future of providing safe and effective anesthesia care to all patients.

Today, CRNAs (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) practice in every type of healthcare setting in which anesthesia is delivered, the resolution stated. They safely deliver more than 45 million anesthetics to patients each year and are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America, enabling healthcare facilities in these medically underserved areas to offer obstetrical, surgical, trauma stabilization, and pain management services.
