Mathilde Crutchfield, MD

Mathilde is a board-certified anesthesiologist with over ten years of clinical practice experience with extensive knowledge of the complexities of disease, pharmacology, and physiology that characterize today’s complex medical world. As the “internist” of the operating room, she is a physician leader providing care in rapidly changing clinical situations. Her special interest in patient safety has led her to seek opportunities to be involved outside the operating room in pre-admission testing clinics, simulation training, and quality assurance committees throughout her career.

Recently, she has been on the front line alongside fellow team members, managing the high volume of critically ill patients during the COVID pandemic. The novel disease challenged her to take on new roles and responsibilities in the ICU, triaging patients with limited resources and managing ventilators in unconventional ways. Through this extraordinary challenge, she demonstrated her resiliency and adaptability in dynamic and evolving environments. She regularly consults on patient-centered care in a broad and global manner in various fields of industry.

Mathilde graduated with a B.A. in French Studies from the University of Virginia in 1995, and received her medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine in 1999. She then completed her residency in anesthesiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School. In 2015, she completed an innovative retraining fellowship at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital.

Mathilde is a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology and a member of the New York and New Jersey State Societies of Anesthesiologists.
