President David Rosen oversees Midwest Anesthesia Partners (MAP), a physician group in the Chicago metro area that contains over 150 anesthesiology nurses and physicians.
Like most in the industry, MAP formed by joining with other smaller physician groups to prevent being purchased by a large hospital system. This also gave the anesthesiologists compensation power, so they didn’t have to try to negotiate rates individually.
Rosen says that most anesthesiologists worry about how they will be paid due to the future of health care being so uncertain. Anesthesiologist pay is often under scrutiny because their function doesn’t bring people in to the hospital.
Despite this uncertainty, Rosen says new technologies and best practices can make anesthesia better than it has ever been. Rosen spoke to Tennessean reporter Shelley DuBois about how Midwest Anesthesia Partners will do its share in keeping surgeries safe and pain-free.
