Matt Vincent, CRNA – Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist

Matt Vincent has been a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist at HAMH since April, 2015. Matt earned his BSN in Nursing from North Dakota State University in Fargo and his MSN-Nurse Anesthesia from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

Prior to being a CRNA, Matt worked as a RN at Saint Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield and at Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis. He started working as a CRNA in 2011 at Sanford Hospital in Fargo, ND. Matt also occasionally works as a locum tenum CRNA.

While working at Sanford he focused on the critical care aspects of anesthesia and OB. He was on the open heart, OB and neonatal teams. While being a part of these teams, Matt was directly involved in the care of the most critical patients in the hospital. He knew someday he would like to provide anesthesia in a rural environment and that gave him the best opportunity to make that transition a reality.

Through these experiences and his desire to provide anesthesia in a rural environment, Matt and his family moved to Hayward after 3 ½ years in Fargo, ND. Although the patients in Hayward are often less critical, he enjoys being involved in all aspects of the patient’s anesthetic from their initial pre-anesthetic interview to discharging them from the recovery area. Matt said, “I truly enjoy providing a service that allows people to live in a small town, enjoy all the benefits of that small town, but also receive quality healthcare without having to drive to a big city where they feel uncomfortable and it is not convenient in their daily lives.”

Matt and his wife, Jocelyn have been married for 10 years and have 3 children, Asher-7, Emmersyn-4, and Brighton-1. They live in the woods, east of Round Lake and enjoy the peace and quiet that provides. His personal interests involve being outdoors – cycling, cross country and downhill skiing, hunting, camping, kayaking, and trail building. He also enjoys reading books, playing guitar, and playing board/card games.
