Anesthesia Services

Patient safety and comfort throughout surgery and major diagnostic procedures are the top priorities of the St. Joseph Hospital Department of Anesthesiology. A full range of the latest, evidence-based techniques are utilized in operating rooms, delivery rooms and procedure areas. Prior to each planned procedure, the anesthesiologist scheduled to care for the patient at the time of surgery will personally conduct a pre-operative evaluation to formulate an appropriate, individualized anesthesia plan.

St. Joseph Hospital anesthesiologists all adhere to the highest clinical standards in administering anesthesia for patients undergoing routine and emergency procedures. These include guidelines and protocols established by the American Society of Anesthesiologists and The Joint Commission.

Compassionate care and favorable outcomes have been major factors in St. Joseph Hospital performing more surgeries and delivering more babies than any other hospital in Orange County. Anesthesia excellence has also played a role in St. Joseph Hospital being named one of the top 50 hospitals in the nation for orthopedic care by U.S.News & World Report.
