Job Description:

We're a New Orleans-based, non-profit health system on a mission: to provide the best possible care for every person and parish in Louisiana and beyond, and to put a little more heart and soul into healthcare along the way. And that means we do things a little differently around here. Treating people like family is the LCMC Health way, and it always has been. Founded by Louisiana's first freestanding children's hospital, we've grown into a healthcare system that's built to serve the unique needs of our communities and families. Today, we offer six hospital locations: Children's Hospital New Orleans, East Jefferson General Hospital, New Orleans East Hospital, Touro, University Medical Center New Orleans, and West Jefferson Medical Center. We also offer a network of urgent care centers across the greater New Orleans area. With over 2,800 physicians specializing in everything from head to toe, our community can count on us to provide the right care, right where they need it. This job description is intended to describe the general nature and level of the work being performed by people assigned to this work. This is not an exhaustive list of all duties and responsibilities. LCMC Health reserves the right to amend and change responsibilities to meet organizational needs as necessary.

Pain management services for perioperative patients as well as consultations for pain management are also provided by the anesthesiologist. Additionally, the anesthesiologist provides technical oversight and assistance to the hospital's conscious sedation team, as applicable. The anesthesiologist also participates in continuing medical education, the education of medical students, residents, student anesthetists and nurses.

  • Compliance with the ABA Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program (MOCA).
  • Compliance with Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners requirements for CME.
  • Demonstration of competence in advanced life support. Responsibilities:
    • Responsibility for directing/supervising all anesthesia and sedation services for patients throughout the hospital, under their care (including all departments in all campuses and off-site locations where anesthesia services are provided).
    • Delivery of anesthesia services consistent with recognized standards for anesthesia care including:
      • Patient consent;
      • Infection control measures;
      • Safety practices in all anesthetizing areas;
      • Protocols for supportive life functions, e.g., cardiac and respiratory emergencies;
