About NCAP

Established in 1998, Northern Colorado Anesthesia Professionals (NCAP) is a locally owned, single-specialty anesthesia group practice serving world-class hospitals and surgery centers in beautiful Northern Colorado.  NCAP utilizes a medical supervision care team model, with physicians supervising multiple CRNAs in many of the facilities we serve.  We have 100+ providers (50% Anesthesiologists, 50% CRNAs) and work closely with all of our contracted facilities, clinically and administratively, to provide the best perioperative care in the region. It is expected that our CRNAs preform at a high level of self-sufficiency communicating regularly with the supervising physician. The supervising physician is immediately available to assist with any anesthesia-related questions or concerns NCAP supports CRNA practice and provides a great collegial, professional working environment between our Physician and CRNA providers. NCAP is looking for the best candidates from around the country to fill positions as we continue to expand our practice.

Service Locations

Organized in two geographic “pods”; South (Lafayette and Louisville) and North (Ft. Collins, Loveland, Greeley), NCAP is mindful to have its providers work predominately in their “home pod” which ensures more consistent engagement with facilities and limits time spent with travel.

In the North Pod, NCAP provides service in hospitals located in Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley, as well as ambulatory surgery centers in each community. Hospitals range from Level III to Level II trauma centers. Fast paced out-patient ambulatory centers are single and multi-specialty in focus. The case mix across all facilities includes general surgery, trauma, obstetrics, orthopedics, spine, neuro, GI, eyes, and EP lab. Hospital coverage requires a 30-minute response time and as a result most providers who call the North Pod home usually live in or around the communities of Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Johnstown, Timnath, Greeley, and Severance.

  • Locations specific to CRNA coverage include UCHealth system hospitals in Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley. Ambulatory / Outpatient centers include Orthopedic, GI, General Surgery, and an Eye Center.
  • CRNAs place spinals, epidurals, arterial lines, central venous lines, and occasional other regional blocks
  • Most peripheral nerve blocks are placed by supervising physicians to expedite case flow
  • Cardiac or major vascular cases are covered by the physician heart team
  • Limited pediatric exposure throughout the Practice

In the south pod, NCAP works primarily with Good Samaritan Medical Center (Level II) in Lafayette. Across all facilities, the primary case mix includes general surgery, Level II trauma, occasional thoracic and vascular, orthopedics, obstetrics, neuro and spine, GI, ENT, and EP lab. Hospital coverage requires 30-minute response time and providers who call the South Pod home usually live in or around the communities of Broomfield, Lafayette, Louisville and other north Denver locations.

  • CRNAs place spinals, epidurals, arterial lines, central venous lines, and occasional other regional blocks
  • CRNAs do not preform cardiac or major vascular cases, as these cases are typically not preformed at the South facilities
  • South providers will occasionally cover MCR in Loveland based on staffing needs.
  • Limited Pediatric exposure throughout the Practice
