Established in 1997, Northern Colorado Anesthesia Professionals (NCAP) is an independent, single-specialty anesthesia group practice serving world-class hospitals and surgery centers in beautiful Northern Colorado. NCAP utilizes a 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 facility administration, surgeons and surgery staff. A care team model is utilized in most facilities, and an NCAP supervising anesthesiologist oversees up to four CRNAs concurrently. While supervising, the physician is immediately available to assist with any anesthesia-related needs.
NCAP provides anesthetizing services at 12 hospital and surgery center locations in two geographic locations – North and South. Our North pod covers the Fort Collins-Loveland-Greeley area and includes Poudre Valley Hospital and Medical Center of the Rockies. A new hospital in Greeley will open in May 2019. Our South pod covers the Longmont-Lafayette-Louisville area and includes Good Samaritan Medical Center and Longs Peak Hospital. Providers are scheduled to work within their assigned pod. New providers will orient at one of our North pod hospitals before being assigned to other facilities. Door-to-OR call response time is 30 minutes.
The primary case mix is dependent on the assigned geographic pod and can be facility specific. For the North Pod, the primary case mix may include general surgery, Level II trauma, obstetrics, orthopedics and spine, neuro, GI, eyes, EP lab, and arterial catheter placements. Some outpatient settings might be high-volume, fast-turnover ambulatory surgery cases. There are limited pediatrics and thoracic/labor epidurals.
For the South Pod, the primary case mix may include general surgery, Level II trauma, occasional thoracic and vascular, orthopedics, obstetrics, neuro and spine to include deep brain stimulation, GI, ENT, EP lab, and arterial catheter placements. There are limited pediatrics and thoracic/labor epidurals.
NCAP uses a straight production compensation model based on case points and call (average 8-10 call shifts/month including one weekend). Providers earn points for solo cases, supervised cases, call, and non-clinical administrative duties. Time off is unpaid and providers average seven weeks of time off annually. Providers have the opportunity to advance to member status.
In addition to a competitive compensation program, NCAP provides a comprehensive benefit package including a medical plan with a health savings account, dental, vision, life insurance, LTD, an exceptional 401k retirement plan with a generous employer contribution, professional liability insurance, and CME reimbursement.
