The 2021 Anesthesia Labor Market: Practice Information and Preferences Revealed

HARRISON, NY – Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management company, announced it has released the findings of its annual survey of anesthesiologists and Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) around the country. Now in its eighth year, Somnia’s annual anesthesia labor market survey produces data on issues important to clinicians, including preferences for practice model type, locations, and salaries.

This report, “The 2021 Anesthesia Labor Market: New Practice Information and Preferences,” reveals workstyle preferences, practice specialties, regional market variations. These factors driving career choices, job searches, and other relevant information anesthesiologists, CRNAs, and healthcare executives can use when planning careers or formulating operating budgets and strategic plans.

“The data and information delivered in this latest study is invaluable in helping us recruit and retain anesthesia providers effectively and efficiently,” says Megan O’Mara, director of National Recruiting at Somnia Anesthesia. “It’s also a helpful tool anesthesiologists and CRNAs can use when making a career change and for healthcare executives who are reevaluating their anesthesia operations.”

Healthcare executives for the past two years continue to struggle with lingering Covid-19 variants and ongoing regulatory changes which makes it even harder to deliver value and quality that are impacting their planning, program implementation, and payments to providers. Having current market data derived from surveys like this one informs administrative decisions and strategies affecting healthcare services and associated costs in today’s value-based care environment.
