About Us

At Vancouver Ketamine Infusions, the experience you have with our clinic and our clinicians helps heal the mind and body. Our hope is for you to feel valued, safe, and know that we are here for you. We are more than a ketamine clinic. We are a team of compassionate professionals who believe in our work and in changing our patients’ lives through this remarkable treatment.

Having been inspired by the tremendous success of ketamine infusions for various conditions, we are passionate about bringing a cost-effective option to Southwest Washington and Portland. Our team members have been impacted by debilitating depression, anxiety, PTSD, or chronic pain, either personally or through loved ones. We see ketamine infusion therapy as a rapidly effective bridge to higher functioning and a more meaningful, joy-filled life.

For over fifty years, anesthesia providers have safely used ketamine for their patients in war zones, field hospitals, emergency rooms, operating rooms, outpatient surgery centers, and pain clinics. We believe anesthesia providers are the most qualified to administer ketamine safely in any environment. The team at Vancouver Ketamine Infusions are highly trained CRNAs in the practice of anesthesiology with more than 40 years of combined anesthesiology experience.

Additionally, we have chosen to abide by the highest standards of care, maintaining a National Board Certification in Anesthesiology (NBCRNA), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), Pediatric Advanced Life Support [PALS], and CPR/AED certifications, adhering to the highest standards in office-based anesthesiology care, exceeding all required safety measures and equipment. Your safety is our first priority. Your path to a brighter tomorrow has never been safer or closer.

Our Promise

Our mission and values guide our dedicated team in building relationships founded on mutual trust, integrity, and the utmost respect for those in our core. We combine this with teamwork and a passion for excellence to give you truly exceptional care. We provide the very best treatments with the highest level of safety, care, and professionalism possible. Your success is our passion.

Karl W. Hare, CRNA

Karl is a National Board-Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist with 29 years of healthcare experience. He received his Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Walla Walla Community College in 1993 and his Bachelor’s of Science from Portland State University in 1997. He then pursued a degree in Anesthesia, becoming a CRNA, and graduating with a Master’s of Science in Anesthesia from Middle Tennessee School of Anesthesia in 2001.

Karl has served on medical mission trips from Africa to Brazil. In addition, Karl has spent 21 years giving anesthesia in hospitals, surgery centers, and medical office settings, such as neurosurgery, cardiothoracic and vascular surgery, trauma surgery, orthopedics, pediatric surgery, obstetrics, general surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, chronic pain management, and more. Karl’s desire is to help those suffering from psychological and physical pains.

“My mission is to educate and raise awareness that there is hope for a better quality of life, with safe, effective treatments available right now for severe depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, PTSD, neuropathic pain, and many other physical and emotional conditions that cause deep suffering.”

Marci Hare, CRNA

Marci is a National Board-Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist with 29 years of healthcare experience. She received her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Southern Adventist University in 1993 and her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from Southern Adventist University in 1995. She then pursued her dream of becoming a CRNA and graduated with a Master’s of Science in Anesthesia from the Middle Tennessee School of Anesthesia in 2002.

Marci was raised by missionary parents and has lived all over the world. From an early age, she learned the deep rewards of serving others. Her desire to serve has taken her to the Amazon in Brazil to serve on a medical launch that serviced the Amazon River and its tributaries. Although Marci has spent 20 years giving anesthesia in clinical settings, such as obstetrics, general surgery, orthopedics, and more, great satisfaction comes from reaching out to help those suffering from psychological pain, not just physical pain. She desires to help those suffering from mood disorders and chronic pain. Working alongside first responders and other healthcare providers through the years, she knows the deep physical and emotional struggles that caregivers can have.

“My hope is that Vancouver Ketamine Infusions will be a place where PTSD patients, first responders, and healthcare providers feel safe and allow themselves to get the help that they deserve. We all deserve to have the opportunity to live more peacefully and with joy that can grow each day.”
