The Capitol Anesthesiology Association (CAA) was founded in 1973, providing services to high-acuity hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and Level 1 Trauma Centers in the Austin area. They service places like the Dell Children’s Medical Center and Texas Orthopedics. CAA has grown to become one of the largest independent practices of anesthesiology-specialized physicians in the country. They are dedicated to giving the highest quality of care to over 20 medical facilities, with more than 80 physicians and 130 CRNAs (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists).
Each of CAA’s physicians is certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology or is in the process of getting certified. Many of them even have specialized in different areas of medicine, like pediatrics, obstetrics, and cardiothoracic. Their commitment to clinical excellence is met by their amazing 130-person CRNA team that supports their physicians in giving the best anesthesia experience possible. CAA is also a member of the AQI (Anesthesia Quality Institute) and uses education and data training to ensure quality improvement. This partnership lets CAA stay at the forefront of the best patient care, which is Capitol Anesthesiology Association’s ultimate commitment.
Being committed to people involves being committed to the community as well. CAA has supported many philanthropic organizations throughout the years, with physicians and CRNAs donating their knowledge and time to many organizations that help serve underprivileged areas all over the world. CAA has been associated with organizations like Operation Smile, Eels on Wheels, Austin Smiles, the Children’s Medical Center Foundation, Partnerships for Children, and Family Eldercare.
