On behalf of everyone at our organization, I would like to extend our warmest wishes to all of you as we celebrate Physician Anesthesiologists Week. Your tireless efforts to provide the best possible care to your patients are truly admirable and make a significant difference in the lives of many. In every subspecialty within the hospital setting, in our intensive care units, and in our satellite pain medicine clinics in the greater Los Angeles community, you consistently execute world-class care.

We are proud to acknowledge the outstanding contributions that our physician anesthesiologists make to the field of medicine. Our team is composed of leaders in anesthesiology at all levels: in patient care, quality and patient safety, healthcare professional well-being, mentoring and career advancement, JEDI efforts, global health, education, advocacy, research and more. Our commitment to progress is made reality because of your efforts. 

Have a wonderful Physician Anesthesiologists Week!
