Message From Dr. Scott Reeves

The Department of Anesthesia's “can-do” mentality along with all that our beautiful city has to offer creates a wonderful environment in which to train, work and live.

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs)

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) are Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRN) that have been administering quality anesthesia since 1963 at the Medical University of South Carolina. The CRNAs and Anesthesiologists work together using the Anesthesia Care Team Model. The Anesthesia Care Team Model allows the department to deliver over 37,000 anesthetics annually in a safe and efficient manner utilizing the specific skills of each of the team members. As the department has grown, the CRNA staff has been an integral part of the increasing regional and national reputation that the department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine has experienced. Currently the department has over 70 CRNAs on staff that are dedicated to providing safe, compassionate, excellent care for our patients. 

As professionals, CRNA’s provide a variety of anesthesia techniques both within the operating rooms and throughout the hospital. Under the supervision of an anesthesiologist, CRNAs monitor every function of your body and individually modify the anesthetic during the entire procedure to ensure patient comfort and safety. CRNAs are important members of the department’s anesthesia specialty teams in the areas of adult cardiac, pediatrics, pediatric cardiac, and ambulatory.

MUSC CRNAs also participate in training and educating future anesthesia providers attending MUSC’s Anesthesia for Nurses Program. Several of our CRNAs have held, or are currently holding both national and state association leadership positions. Many of our CRNAs serve as speakers for regional and national meetings advancing our education and clinical skill knowledge.

We are proud of our contributions and reputation in the innovation of nurse anesthesia practice occurring within the department. Our outstanding service and dedication promote MUSC’s mission for quality patient care, education of our future colleagues, and research to continually advance and change what’s possible in Health care.
