Innovation. Commitment. Excellence.
Welcome to Atlantic Anesthesia
Through innovative programs and practices, Atlantic Anesthesia delivers consistent and proven high quality health care, which translates into excellent results for the patients, surgeons and hospitals we serve.
We are constantly seeking ways to put the latest scientific evidence into practice by conducting rigorous internal scrutiny of our guidelines and protocols. Our providers are evaluated regularly in a “360º” process by their peers and customers to provide the feedback necessary for continued improvement. From our customized perioperative patient evaluation form to the Patient Controlled Analgesia order set—which has been acclaimed and adopted by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO)—we continue to enhance our culture of excellence.
Our strong community involvement stems from the founder of our practice, Julius J. Snyder, MD, who was the first anesthesiologist to practice at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital. Other anesthesiologists joined the practice from the surrounding area, and we continue to grow the practice in that way today by seeking professionals who are dedicated to our region and committed to the long-term well-being of the people of Hampton Roads. Many of our CRNAs have come from training programs in the area, including Old Dominion University and Virginia Commonwealth University, establishing a firm commitment to service in the area.
With strong ties to the community for more than forty years, Atlantic Anesthesia has built lasting relationships with your surgeons, Sentara Hospitals, and the operating room team who have come to rely on our constant support. We are very proud that the top 100 surgeons we work with recently rated us a 4.44 on a 5.00 scale as we delivered high volume care across a spectrum of settings including multiple outpatient surgical centers, trauma centers, high risk obstetrical centers, and numerous centers of excellence for surgical subspecialties.
