“A better Seattle anesthesia group”–In early 2010 AAS began providing outpatient anesthesia to surgeons throughout the Puget Sound region. We quickly noticed that outpatient surgery facilities were being underserved in our area. Facilities often had to choose between contracting with the large, regional anesthesia groups with their expensive pricing and impersonal service, or using small, independent providers who lacked the resources or training needed to provide the true full service, high-quality anesthesia that small to medium-sized facilities demand.
We changed all that. Filling that gap, we began partnering with amazing anesthesia providers. All of our providers are hand-picked, board certified and experienced in all areas of anesthesia. They have consistently been ranked among the best anesthesia providers in the area. Just as important, they are level-headed, compassionate, have positive attitudes, and are generally nice to be around. While we focus on outpatient anesthesia and have developed expertise in that area, most of our providers maintain and improve their skills by working at some of the largest hospitals in our area. We keep up on the latest research and techniques in order to provide cutting-edge, modern anesthesia.
While we’ve grown steadily since those first days, we still maintain the personal service you and your patients deserve. Adding new facilities at a steady pace over the years has given us the experience and resources needed to offer our surgeons and patients the absolute best anesthesia available. We have grown, but we still maintain the same core beliefs. We work hard to ensure the success of the facilities we serve, and we treat patients the way we would want to be treated, with respect and dignity.
