Somnia Announces Winner of 2020 CRNA of the Year Award
HARRISON, NY (February 17, 2020) – Somnia Anesthesia, an anesthesia practice management and perioperative medicine company serving hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office-based facilities nationwide, announced the winner of the 2020 CRNA of the Year Award: Mary Clothier, CRNA, John Hopkins Hospital. The award was established in support of National Nurse Anesthetists Week.
“As a CRNA and a healthcare executive, I am proud of nurse anesthetists across the country who advance the anesthesia specialty through safe, compassionate, and cost-efficient care,” said Linda Caccamo, DNP, CRNA, MS, MBA/MHA and COO at Somnia Anesthesia. “Both nursing and anesthesia continue to evolve, and mandates for value, accessible care and enhanced patient experiences suggest the role of nurse anesthetists will continue to expand and evolve. It is clear that nurse anesthetists will remain vital clinicians in tomorrow’s healthcare landscape.”
Ms. Clothier was nominated by her colleagues for the rapport she develops with patients and their families prior surgery, the 100% support she always shows her colleagues—often working beyond her shift to ensure full coverage—and her reputation for being the CRNA-of-choice for some of the Hospital’s toughest surgeons. According to one of her colleagues, she is “irreplaceable!”
The annual award recognizes the dedication of anesthesia clinicians who work to achieve best-in-class patient care and who demonstrate an honest commitment to personal and professional growth and improvement.
