BUENA VISTA ANESTHESIA MEDICAL GROUP
BVAMG was formed in 1993 and is structured as a partnership of physicians. There are approximately 45 board-certified/eligible physician anesthesiologists, including four cardiac fellowship trained specialists associated with BVAMG. We currently have a 30-year relationship with Providence Health Systems as the exclusive provider of anesthesia services at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center (PSJMC) in Burbank, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center (PHCMC), San Fernando Valley Surgery Center in Mission Hills, and Summit Surgery Center in Valencia. We have been exclusive providers of anesthesia services at PSJMC since 1993 and at PHCMC since 2001.
BVAMG has provided stable leadership and qualified anesthesia medical directors at two hospitals (Providence Saint Joseph and Holy Cross Medical Centers) and at seven ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) (including Summit and Mission Hills ASC and five independent ASCs) for the last 14 years. We work collaboratively with administration, nursing, and our surgeons to provide seamless care at all facilities 24/7. We are well known within the Providence family, and we believe our track record precedes us.
Most of our practitioners rotate through all facilities. We pride ourselves on our collegial relationships in the group and beyond. Retention of our anesthesiologists attests to the functionality of the group. Our strong leadership is well known throughout the Providence facilities at which we practice. BVAMG recruits and staffs its anesthesia positions through an extensive recruitment and internal review process that determines both clinical capability and training, as well as philosophical compatibility within the group. BVAMG is passionately engaged in building a working experience that fosters collegiality, embraces change, displays professional and ethical standards of excellence, and challenges its members to be involved in all aspects of the practice.
BVAMG physicians possess a wide scope of knowledge and experience. Our physician members have vast experience and expertise in the delivery of a full range of anesthesia services, including but not limited to cardiothoracic, neurosurgical, bariatric, orthopedic, vascular, robotic surgery, obstetrics, trauma, pediatric anesthesia, and the management of critically ill patients. We also offer expertise in multimodal acute pain management. Having recruited many anesthesiologists from excellent training programs, BVAMG has multiple board-certified anesthesiologists trained in the latest nerve block techniques for postoperative pain relief.
