Locum Anesthesia Solutions was founded to address the dynamic anesthesia staffing needs of hospitals and surgery centers. We pride ourselves in providing high-quality anesthesia providers to facilities in the quickest and most cost-effective manner.
Our experience, as practicing CRNAs in every type of care setting, sets us apart from the traditional staffing agency. LAS has proven to be the best option for our clients because of our intimate knowledge of what it takes to staff and run a successful anesthesia department.
Only The Best Candidates
Our screening process of potential candidates is unmatched by any “recruiter” because of our anesthesia knowledge base and hands-on experience in the operating room. Ensuring every anesthesia provider is the right “fit” for the specific needs of each facility and assignment is something we hold as a core tenet for our business.
We value transparency with our independent contractors and contracted facilities in terms of required schedule and types of cases. In an effort to respect the valuable time of anesthesia department administrators, LAS does not present any candidate without ensuring there is sincere intent to accept the assignment and a mutual agreement of expectations on both sides.
We are grateful for the hospital administrations and anesthesia departments that have given our business the opportunity to prove that we can deliver the staffing results they desire in an expeditious, economical, and efficient manner.
Why CRNAs Partner with LAS?
We are THE Locum agency for anesthesia providers, because we are owned and operated by CRNAs that understand the nuance of a successful anesthesia assignment.
LAS prides itself in treating its anesthesia practitioners as partners; with the shared goal of providing excellent patient care in facilities that are in need of staffing assistance. We aim for long term relationships with contractors through mutual respect, transparency and empathy for the job they do as locum CRNAs and Physician Anesthesiologists. We are fundamentally opposed to any anesthesia provider feeling trapped or taken advantage of contractually and will never resort to those tactics.
