Irving, Texas-based NorthStar Anesthesia began providing services Feb. 1 at Baptist Health Hardin in Elizabethtown, Ky.
NorthStar notably recruited a majority of the incumbent group's anesthesiologists and more than 92 percent of its CRNAs. NorthStar appointed a new chief CRNA and a new medical director from providers in that group.
Baptist Health hired NorthStar to modernize its anesthesia services.
NorthStar acquired Nashville, Tenn.-based Surgery Partners' anesthesia services business in September 2020.
