Patricia L. Stanwood CRNA

Patricia Stanwood, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), came to Whidbey General in 2003 to support and build the hospital’s epidural program. Thanks in large part to her efforts, today at Whidbey General a laboring mom in pain has the option of state-of-the-art obstetrical anesthesia any time of the day or night. In 2010, she expanded her scope of care to include providing vascular access for instruments such as neck catheters, which provide a more efficient means of administering medication to hospitalized patients.
