Department of Anesthesiology
Welcome to the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center. Our 87 faculty anesthesiologists, 39 resident anesthesiologists and seventeen certified nurse anesthetists provide anesthetic services and pain management for over 35,000 patients each year. We provide patient care throughout the University of Utah Health system, the Salt Lake Veterans Affairs Medical Center and the Shriners Hospital for Children. The University of Utah Health system locations include the University of Utah Hospital, the University Orthopaedic Center, the Pain Management Center, the Moran Eye Center, the Huntsman Cancer Hospital, the University Neuropsychiatric Institute, West Jordan Health Center, Farmington Health Center and the Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine.
