The Department of Anesthesia supports the mission/vision of the CRMC by providing quality medical care to its patients.

When Cotabato Regional Hospital transferred to its present location in Sinsuat Avenue, Malagapas, Cotabato City in 1984, it was already a 150 bed capacity facility, with its growthwas the establishment of a departmentalized teaching and training hospital accredited by the ministry of health. The same year, the department of Anesthesia was created with one consultant, who was also appointed as the Anesthesia Chairman and 2 anesthesia residents. The department had graduated 21 anesthesiologists since it was created. Since 1984 there was only one diplomate in anesthesia, the department chair. Then in 1996 another diplomate, a Pediatric Anesthesiologist, joined the department and was appointed department chair in 1998, but still short of the required 3 Diplomates for the accreditation of the department. Then in 2012, anotherdiplomate joined the department. There are two staff consultants and two visiting consultants in the department. At present we have three senior residents and three first year residents.
