CARTHAGE, Ill. — Memorial Hospital has added certified registered nurse anesthetists Steven Knight and Bryon Sobczak to the surgical and obstetrics team. 

Knight received his master of science degree in nursing and nurse anesthesia from Bradley University in Peoria in 1992. 

“I am thrilled to join a team that is so thoroughly committed to providing high-quality health care to our patients,” Knight said. “An extraordinary family atmosphere makes it possible for incredible accomplishments and possibilities at Memorial Hospital.” 

Sobczak received his diploma of nurse anesthesia from Evanston Northwestern Healthcare School of Anesthesia in Evanston in 2003. 

“It is a pleasure to be at Memorial Hospital in Carthage to provide anesthesia and interventional pain management services,” he said. “It is a field I enjoy immensely and greatly look forward to bringing my 18 years of experience to the patients at Memorial Hospital.” 

Sobczak and Knight provide many services, including peripherally inserted central catheter treatments, which can be used to administer cancer treatments and other infection treatments, and arterial line placements, which are used to treat patients with cardiac conditions, including heart failure and cardiac arrest. They also perform labor epidural placement and management, as well as ultrasound-guided transabdominal plane blocks which aid in pain management and general anesthesia without requiring opioid medication. Sobczak and Knight also conduct pre-surgical consultations with patients.
