Expertise

Our experience is rooted in the outpatient anesthesia world, but our expertise is in overcoming the impossible. The nature of healthcare is that it is constantly and continuously changing, which means there is a lot of opportunity for those making smart, forward-thinking decisions. We integrate seamlessly with your team while advancing your practice so as to become a leader in our ever-evolving industry.

Outpatient Anesthesia

AMS helped create a safe, effective, and profitable office-based anesthesia model that has been replicated throughout the country.

We have been focused on

value-based healthcare

since our founding and continue to evolve the outpatient anesthesia model and the services we provide.

Independent Physicians

AMS' comprehensive office-based surgical solution has helped to drive significant growth of outpatient surgery and ease the burden associated with outpatient surgery on independent physicians.

AMS partners with leading health systems and independent physician groups across many specialties to develop and lead their office-based and outpatient practices.

Health & Wellness

By investing in the overall health & wellness of your patients, AMS has proven to reduce healthcare costs while growing patient satisfaction.

This begins well before problems become evident and require additional care. AMS has initiated several innovative ideas in this domain, including tele-health/e-health options that expand access to knowledgeable providers and education programs for patients about preventative care measures.
