History of Madison Anesthesiology
Madison Anesthesiology Consultants, LLP (MAC) was formed and began practice at
Meriter Hospital in May of 2001. Thirteen physicians, many with long practice
ties to the local community, left their previous employer to start this new
group. The physicians of MAC had previously practiced anesthesiology at Meriter
Hospital as members of Physicians Plus Medical Group and had established a
pattern of excellent perioperative care. The formation of MAC stemmed from the
desire to continue this pattern of excellence that best serves the community and
Since its inception, MAC has continued to grow in response to the surgical and obstetrical demands of Meriter Hospital. MAC currently has 25 physician members that all participate in the care of patients at Meriter Hospital. In addition to providing perioperative care in the hospitals operating rooms, MAC plays an increasingly large role in the care of obstetrical patients at Meriter. More than 50% of obstetrical patients at Meriter have some involvement with MAC. With the recent increase in popularity of epidural anesthesia to assist with labor and delivery, MAC has responded by being on the forefront of innovations and techniques designed to maximize comfort and well-being for mother and baby. Please visit the Childbirth & Anesthesia section for further information.
In addition to the operating room and obstetrical suite, MAC also contributes to care in other parts of the hospital. When requested, MAC anesthesiologists assist with care of patients in the emergency room, intensive care units, cardiac care units, and endoscopy suites. Madison Anesthesiology Consultants, LLP, and its predecessor organizations, have a long tradition of integral involvement by physicians in the development of hospital policies and procedures. MAC has a history of attracting extremely well-qualified individuals for positions within the group. We have made excellence in providing service and care to our patients an absolute priority. Madison Anesthesiology Consultants, LLP looks forward to continuing to serve Meriter Hospital, our medical, surgical, and obstetrical colleagues, and our community of patients with the highest possible level of anesthetic care.
