Case Study: How a Small Agency Became a Leader



In 2004, the largest health system in western Pennsylvania found itself in need of additional CRNAs to manage the increased caseload within its growing network.


Understanding the difficulty and costly nature of recruiting permanent and locum providers, the system’s administration reached out to Independence Anesthesia Services for help.

The Independence Anesthesia Services team quickly got to work and began sourcing CRNAs from a variety of recruiting tools including their internal database, job boards, as well as targeted email and social media campaigns.


Throughout the partnership, Independence Anesthesia Services has produced a nearly 90% fill rate for this Pennsylvania health system, resulting in 70 successful placements.


Is your facility in need of additional anesthesia coverage? Are you curious about how a staffing agency can help your healthcare network? Independence Anesthesia has been in the business of locum anesthesia for twenty years, placing CRNAs and anesthesiologists in short-term and long-term roles across the country.
