Founded in 1979, United Anesthesia has established a robust presence across the country, specializing in delivering exceptional anesthesia staffing solutions. With over four decades of experience and a strong market position, United Anesthesia brings a wealth of expertise and industry knowledge to GHR Healthcare.

"We are excited to join forces with GHR Healthcare and bring our expertise in anesthesia staffing to a larger platform," said Tracy Strother-Mayer, President and CEO of United Anesthesia.

Together, we will continue to deliver exceptional healthcare staffing solutions and make an impact on patient care across the United States." We thank Founders Advisors for connecting our remarkable organizations.

"Tracy and the United Anesthesia team have built a very successful business in locum tenens staffing services for anesthesiologists and CRNAs, serving health systems and surgery centers nationwide for over 45-years," said John Quirk, CEO of GHR Healthcare. "The cultures of GHR and UA align perfectly. Both are dedicated to providing superior customer service and creating tremendous professional opportunities for both contracted providers and internal team members.
