Physicians & Departments


Our affiliate, Massachusetts General Hospital, provides anesthesia coverage for our hospital through physicians from its Department of Anesthesia, Critical Care and Pain Medicine. To augment care, certified registered nurse anesthetists are available 24/7 year-round to assist the anesthesiologists. The use of nurse anesthetists is common at MGH and hospitals around the country. This expanded scope of services provides broad coverage and flexibility for Martha’s Vineyard Hospital’s Surgical Services, Emergency and Maternity departments, and allows for growth in elective procedures. Other benefits of this collaboration include assistance with newborn resuscitation during deliveries, post-operative recovery, ventilator management, support for endoscopic procedures and on-Island pre-operative testing for patients scheduled for major surgical procedures at MGH in Boston.
