We at MAG have extensive experience staffing and helping to design and equip new ASCs. Depending on when we become involved in [your] new venture, we can offer guidance on room layout, supplies, and equipment choices. Our recommendations are based on what works in multiple centers.
MAG can seamlessly move into existing centers where the owners have decided to gain new Anesthesia leadership or skills. We can work with existing equipment and supplies, and make recommendations for any necessary improvements or changes.

WHAT CAN MAG DO YOU FOR?
AMBULATORY SURGICAL CENTERS
Every ASC has an Anesthesia Director, who is there on a regular basis to work with owners, surgeons, and staff. Our Company leaders are always just a phone call or short ride away. We are responsive to your needs.
MAG has physicians with interests, expertise, and fellowship training in multiple specialties of Anesthesiology. Our expertise includes pediatrics, ENT, orthopedics, ophthalmology, spine, bariatrics, and urology. Our physicians are experts in regional Anesthesia, and run outpatient peripheral-nerve catheter programs at several centers. All of our regional-anesthesia patients receive a post-operative call from their Anesthesiologist.
We have the ability to supply specific specialties on specific days, to accommodate scheduling at a multi-specialty surgical center.
MAG leaders are familiar with current regulations from State, CMS, and JCAHO sources. We make sure that our practice and yours is compliant with current requirements. Our centers have never failed an inspection by the State, JCAHO, or AAAHC-AAAAHC. MAG can also assist with policy development and implementation.
MAG doesn’t like last-minute cancellations any more than you or your patients do. We actively direct the pre-testing and pre-surgical evaluation process. We review clinical information for scheduled cases as soon as it is available. Our pre-testing requirements are consistent with the current standard of care, and are the same at all of our centers.
MAG physicians run regular educational sessions for ASC staffs. Topics often include management of malignant hyperthermia, emergencies in the OR, and regional Anesthesia. Any new program or service is preceded by staff education.
MAG physicians are not just ASC based. We take call and [we routinely] care for [more] critically ill patients at our hospitals. This makes us well equipped to deal with unavoidable emergencies, or unexpected intra-operative events. We are comfortable managing [u]nexpected PACU events, and making the rare decision to transfer a patient to a hospital.
