Anesthesia & Pain Management

Board-Certified and In-House Anesthesiologists

Patients at Good Samaritan Hospital have access to top quality anesthesia services provided by physicians who have trained at the country's finest medical institutions. Our anesthesiologists are all Board-certified, reflecting stringent review of their education, demonstrated expertise and experience with the variety of surgical subspecialties that Good Samaritan offers.

On our Labor and Delivery Unit, Good Samaritan Hospital offers women in labor the confidence of having an anesthesiologist in-house at all times. In addition to relief of labor pain, this provides an additional layer of safety for both routine and high risk births.

In our Children's Surgery Center, anesthesiologists with special expertise care for the needs of pediatric patients. These physicians have special training in care of patients from the smallest newborns to adolescents.

As a Primary Stroke Center, Good Samaritan's response team includes anesthesiologists with training for neurosurgery and other neurological interventional procedures. Specialists also provide anesthesiology in cardiovascular and weight loss surgery, recognizing the unique challenges of caring for these patients.

Our anesthesiologists' first concern is always patient safety. They work closely with surgeons, obstetricians and other staff to identify the safest, most effective anesthesia options for each patient. Anesthesiologists are also a valuable resource regarding post-procedure pain management, treatment options for patients with chronic pain and care for critically ill patients in our Intensive Care Units.

Communication with patients is key and often begins before patients have surgery. Our anesthesia providers emphasize dialogue with patients to clarify their needs, answer their questions and allay any concerns or fears they may have.
