For more than 15 years, Madison Anesthesiology Consultants, LLP, has provided anesthesiology services at UnityPoint Health - Meriter. Today, the group is made up of 25 highly-trained physicians who specialize in anesthesiology services and provide care to patients in the operating room, birthing center, emergency room, and many other units throughout the hospital. Since 2013, MAC has championed a $25,000 Matching Gift Challenge, encouraging others to give back and raising thousands in additional funding for Meriter programs including Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, Forensic Nurse Examiner and Helping Educate and Link the Homeless (HEALTH) programs. Focusing on mental health services and community outreach, MAC's support means more children in emotional crisis have tools and resources to move forward, victims of sexual assault have a place to turn, and homeless patients can heal and recover in a safe place.
"As physicians, our number one priority is patient safety and well-being, so we are naturally focused on caring for others. We feel philanthropy makes an impact on meaningful initiatives and the community we serve. It's a win-win knowing our giving inspires others to come together."
