Overview

We are actively recruiting a full time Nurse Manager, Peri-Operative Surgical Home to join U.S. Anesthesia Partners – Colorado which is a growing and well respected practice in Denver, Colorado. Over 75 practice management experts and operational support staff serve our practice which consists of over 200 anesthesiologists, 45 CRNA’s and 14 CAA’s. Our clinical staff members provide care at 10 hospitals and over 15 surgery centers located throughout the Denver metro area. 

 

The Peri-Operative Surgical Home Nurse Manager contributes to the company’s mission and vision by supporting and coordinating clinical performance and customer service. This position will work collaboratively with hospital and surgery center staff to promote, design and implement improvements and innovations.   In order to achieve defined outcomes, this role engenders commitment, encourages cultural changes, disseminates information, and provides support for process changes. Ensures compliance with applicable accreditation, regulatory, and licensure standards.  This role will be a hands-on, in-person liaison between our practice and the facilitieswe serve in the launching and maintenance of our Pre-Admission Testing platforms and additional Peri-Operative Surgical Home programs such as Early Recovery After Surgery pathways. This role will assist in the development and review of standard Pre-Operative testing algorithms, and develop a plan for implementation within facilities, including gaining buy-in, training, troubleshooting and ongoing support.

 

U.S. Anesthesia Partners - Colorado is a physician-led practice and part of U.S. Anesthesia Partners (USAP) which is the largest single-specialty anesthesia practice in the country with over 3,000 team members. Our team of experienced professionals have served this area for more than four decades through two strong anesthesia groups that have now come together. From this new foundation, we will continue to meet the needs of our community well into the future. We are now part of a national network of leading anesthesia providers and have the ability to truly transform anesthesia services across the country. We have access to new resources and best practices that will strengthen our ability to meet the demands of our community and provide leadership and committee opportunities locally for our providers to get engaged and be a part of a growing and leading team.

 

In addition, our integration as USAP-Colorado has allowed us to further build out our service delivery model so that as the facilities we serve require more complex and coordinated anesthesia services, we can support them. This will maintain the important relationships in place with surgeons and facilities to ensure clinical consistency and a continued high level of patient care.

 

Our location in the metro area provides an option to work in the suburbs and locate in outlying bedroom communities. Many of our staff who prefer an urban lifestyle have found housing in Denver’s renewal areas where beautiful older homes, town homes, renovated lofts and re-development communities provide easy access to both downtown and the facilities we serve.

 

Colorado’s four seasons and incredible opportunities for outdoor activities consistently keep many of the metro Denver cities near the top of the “Best Places to Live” ratings. Denver is home to five professional sports teams including the Colorado Rockies, Denver Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets, and the Colorado Rapids. Our world-renowned skiing and full array of exceptional outdoor activities are all within easy access.
