Many large anesthesia service companies treat you like you’re just another number. Most are to some degree owned by private equity groups or investment firms. Some are even publicly traded.
We believe this puts an anesthesia company’s emphasis on one thing – PROFITS.
They must satisfy private and public shareholders with investment returns. This squeezes provider compensation, leading to poor provider performance, low morale and dissatisfaction. Often these anesthesia companies are reluctant to staff additional ORs.
If they don’t meet certain economic thresholds, surgical growth is difficult for facilities, which is why they end up paying expensive guarantees and subsidies to these large companies to keep their inefficient provider models afloat.
Let’s not forget routine surprise and out-of-network billing that’s definitely a symptom of profit-centered anesthesia.
