Anesthesia Services honored by Employee Appreciation Board

Anesthesia Services staff

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board honored Anesthesia Services on June 17 for the department’s exemplary service.

The dedicated group is known in many ways as the “heartbeat” of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. During a recent tragedy, when a beloved VTH faculty member passed away, and two “bomb cyclone” days when CSU closed, the unit’s staff remained calm, competent and completely available to help keep the hospital functioning for a huge number of clinicians, clients and patients in need. The level of care was never compromised in the face of incredibly trying circumstances. The VTH remained standing and supportive in the most difficult of times thanks in large part to this group.

The group was nominated by Dr. Craig B. Webb, interim VTH director, for going above and beyond to help the VTH. Regarding the quality of care, Webb wrote, “The vast majority of procedures done on small and large animals requires anesthesia, and the anesthesia service at the VTH is undoubtedly one of the most qualified and caring in the country, if not the world.” He also mentioned that he would be completely comfortable being put under by this group, even though their focus is animals.
