Dr. Veronica Hincapie Escobar, DNP, CRNA, is a graduate of the Crozer Chester Medical Center Nurse Anesthesia Program at Villanova University. She is a Colombian immigrant who rose through the health-care ranks from environmental services to Registered Nurse (RN), and is now Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). She delivers anesthesia at WellSpan York Hospital with a positive attitude and is eager to continue to grow in her practice. When asked what it means to her to be a Hispanic CRNA, she responded:
“Being a Hispanic CRNA means that I get to show future generations that with discipline and determination you can exceed academically and professionally. The Hispanic resilience, positive outlook, work ethic, and empathy gave me the confidence to continue pursuing my dream to work as an anesthesia provider. Being a Hispanic bilingual CRNA gives me the satisfaction of providing high-quality and safe anesthesia care to our growing community.”
✨ Thank you, Dr. Hincapie Escobar, for sharing your thoughts and happy National Hispanic Heritage Month to the Hispanic communities you serve and all communities across Pennsylvania!
