Anesthesia and Operative Services (DOAOS)


The Department of Anesthesia and Operative Services provides the highest quality of professional anesthesia and perioperative nursing care to our Warriors and their beneficiaries. Consisting of five separate but interwoven sections (Anesthesia, Operating Room, Post-anesthesia Care Unit, Sterile Processing and Distribution and the Pre-admission Unit) it is the goal of DOAOS to coordinate and collaborate with our surgeon colleagues to ensure that patient focused, safe, quality care is completed throughout the surgical continuum.
