The Central Services Department is the hub of all activity surrounding supplies and equipment needed for surgery, obstetrics, and other patient care areas.

Clinical Colleagues, Inc. is the anesthesia management group selected by Grant Memorial Hospital to implement and provide patient-centric standardized care initiatives based upon national best practices.
Through the use of a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) model, standardized care procedures are performed by the nurse anesthetists under the direction of a surgeon. The licensed CRNA is authorized to deliver comprehensive anesthesia care under the Nurse Practice Act of West Virginia. Their anesthesia practice consists of all accepted anesthetic techniques, including general, epidural, spinal, sedation, or local. The CRNA model ensures quality and compassionate anesthesia care with positive clinical outcomes.
Our Anesthesia Department consists of three certified registered nurse anesthetists.
