Paige Saunders, APN, CRNA


Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

“If I wrote an advertisement for surgery at Hennepin Healthcare, it would read something like this: ‘Making your experience so good you’ll wish you weren’t asleep for it!’  The tagline captures my approach to the delivery of care, using humor and laughter to connect with patients to help them cope with difficult situations.”
