About Enloe Surgical and Procedural Assessment Area: ESPAA (pronounced e-spa) is designed to ensure the best possible surgical experience for Enloe’s patients. It’s made up of a team of registered nurses who meet with patients to provide pre-operative education, assessment and testing. ESPAA coordinates with Northstate Anesthesiology Partners, the group of physicians who provide anesthesiology services at Enloe Medical Center. Benefits of the service include: Patients receive education about their upcoming surgery; the ESPAA staff gathers patients’ medical history and provides any needed exams, sharing results with the patients’ surgeon and anesthesiologist; the staff also checks for and follow up on issues that could create a delay in patients’ surgery, and it provides patients with instructions for the day of surgery, including how to prepare, what medications to take, where to go and the arrival time.
