St. Joseph’s Hospital celebrates Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists Week

BUCKHANNON, W.Va. — St. Joseph’s Hospital says a sincere thank you to its CRNA’s during the national recognition week January 23-29.

CRNA Week is an annual celebration of the more than 59,000 CRNAs from across the nation.  It is a tribute to those who work tirelessly to save lives and continuously provide the best possible patient care. 

“As we continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic, we recognize the heroism of our CRNA’s,” said Skip Gjolberg, President of St. Joseph’s Hospital.  “During the COVID shutdown of our operating rooms, the CRNA team headed up our monoclonal antibody infusion center, doing a great job keeping people healthy and out of the hospital. They ensure that we provide safe anesthesia care to all of our patients.” 

“Our CRNAs are truly trusted anesthesia experts on the frontlines here at St. Joseph’s Hospital,” said Kevin Stingo, Director of Surgical Services.
