Susan T. Collins Award


Jana Watkins, MSN, CRNA, is the 2016 recipient of the Susan T. Collins award. Jana joined ECAA Anesthesia Specialists in 2000. Jana was presented the award by Dr. Joshua Schwartz, ECAA President, at the practice’s Christmas party on December 10. This honor is awarded annually to the CRNA/Anesthetist who shows dedication, integrity and devotion to patients, as well as commitment to ECAA. Previous recipients have been DeWayne Byrd, Chief CRNA in 2014, and Don Easley, MSN, CRNA, in 2015.

In 2014, ECAA chose to establish the Susan T. Collins Award, named for one of the first CRNAs hired to join the practice, when the original "Pitt County Anesthesia Associates" was officially formed. This honor is bestowed to the Anesthetist who best embodies the characteristics that Susan has displayed for the last 38 years, primarily recognition for her exemplary character, professionalism and clinical abilities.

In addition to the personalized plaque, there is an inclusion on a master plaque that will list all future Anesthetists. The inscription on the plaque reads:

"For Dedication, Integrity, Devotion to Patients, Commitment to ECAA and
Extraordinary Talent".

 
 

Nurse Anesthesia Program


For over 10 years, ECAA Greenville has been in partnership with East Carolina University's College of Nursing to train some the best Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) in North Carolina. We frequently get positive feedback about these CRNA graduates from other anesthesia groups outside of the Vidant Medical Center training facility in Greenville. Over and over again we hear how these graduates perform at an extremely high level with great professionalism in a team approach environment with physicians. We are very proud of our association with these well trained CRNAs who are taking what they have learned to improve the care provided to patients throughout North Carolina and beyond.
