May 3, 2014 Ultrasound Workshop

2012 AANA Mid-Year Assembly (Washington, DC)

Once again an enthusiastic group of ORANAs membership traveled to Washington DC to meet with our representatives and their legislative staff. We were able to have very productive discussions related to the quality, value and cost effectiveness Nurse Anesthetists bring to the health care market place in the United States.

In Memoriam

It is with regret and sadness that I have been asked to inform you that one of our ORANA members, Richard C. Marsa, passed away last Saturday, August 14 from lymphoma. Richard has been a member and worked in several "fields" of anesthesia over his years in Oregon. I have known and worked with him off and on over the past 20 years and he will be missed by each one of us that have had the pleasure to work with him.

There will be a memorial service for Richard this coming Saturday, August 21, 2010 at 4PM. This will occur at the Sunset Christian Fellowship church in Hillsboro, OR. The address is 3033 SE 59th Ct., Hillsboro, OR  97123 (located behind and just West of Regal Cinemas Movie-on-TV theaters) off of TV Hwy (SH-8) and SW 234th Ave. in Hillsboro.

I am positive that his wife, Myrna and daughters, would appreciate your attendance if possible, or a card or note could be sent to the home address:

6840 SW 158th Ave.
Beaverton, OR  97007

Thank you for your thoughts, remembrance, and prayers for his family.

Up to 23 anesthesiologists will lose their jobs in September...

 

Willamette Week: July 7, 2010
"Turmoil at Good Sam: Up to 23 anesthesiologists will lose their jobs in September when Legacy Good Samaritan ends its contract with the Oregon Anesthesiology Group. The hospital plans to replace the doctors with nurse anesthetists. Unhappy physicians and their supporters have raised concerns about whether the switch puts cost savings ahead of patient safety (nurses make less than docs). Legacy spokesman Brian Terrett says the hospital will gain more control but not benefit financially from the transition because anesthesia costs are billed to patients. He added that the nurse anesthetists will be fully credentialed and supervised by doctors."
