Our Staff

One of the most critical aspects of the CarePoint Anesthesia Group is the interaction our staff has with our doctors’ offices, our patients and the parents of our patients. We pride ourselves on providing a positive experience. From the introductory phone call to any postoperative questions that may arise, we will be there to help you through it all.

 

Anesthesia can be stressful and a bit intimidating, but our staff is proud to be able to walk our patients through everything they need to know, making the whole experience much more enjoyable. Quality, safe anesthesia makes CarePoint a good option for your anesthesia care, but compassion and devotion to the patient experience is what makes CarePoint the best.

 

CarePoint would not be where it is today without the key members who make up our staff. If you happen to work with us in the future, you will most likely cross paths with some of these incredible people. Please take a minute to read their bios below and get to know our team better.

In her spare time she loves to drag race her challenger, go hunting, camping, and fishing.

Rose Liza Baker

I am an “island” girl.  Born in the Philippines but grew up on Guam, a small U.S Territory island in the Pacific. Prior to joining CarePoint Anesthesia, I had worked in the banking industry for over 13 years, with Bank of Hawaii (Guam and Honolulu branches) as an Assistant Vice President for their Cash Management Department.

 

At the urging of a flight attendant friend, I visited Denver in the spring of 2000 and met my husband Michael, who was at that time my neighbor. Long story short, we got married and just celebrated our 12th year anniversary. Together, we have 5 children from a previous marriage, 2 grandkids, and an 18-year-old cat named Gigi.

 

When I permanently moved to Colorado, I was uncertain of what career to pursue. I decided to further my education and completed an Associate of Science degree in Electronic Commerce at the Denver Tech College (now DeVry University).

 

I joined the CarePoint Anesthesia team in the fall of 2015, and do enjoy the benefit and luxury of being home based and not having to commute to work. My main responsibility at CarePoint Anesthesia is the “back end” of the operation.  I handle the submission of Medicaid claims, collection of private pays and Account Receivables, production of EOM reports, and Medicaid credentialing for new providers, etc.

 

Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and introducing Filipino and Chamorro (Guam) cuisine to new found Colorado friends. I do miss swimming in the ocean and the beautiful sunsets at the beaches but have gotten to love the majestic mountains of Colorado.
