The percentage of acute-care hospitals in the Denver area that USAP exclusively covers for all trauma, surgical and OB procedures


The percentage of patient use of opioids that have been cut across a range of surgical procedures at the majority of Denver-area hospitals as a result of USAP protocols[4]

Unlike other anesthesia providers in Colorado, USAP clinicians’ special training makes expert care available to patients undergoing organ transplants, high-risk pregnancy, cardiac procedures, trauma, pediatrics and other critical needs. We are proud to cover a disproportionate number of these complex cases.
