"A Team of Professionals"   

The goal of Western Anesthesiology, Inc. is to administer the best quality anesthetic care.  Shortly after the opening of the new facility of Mercy Hospitals in St. Louis, Western Anesthesiology, Inc. was formed to administer anesthesia at the facility. 

The professional group, consisting of MDs, CRNAs, AAs, RNs and other health professionals, practices the team concept when providing anesthesia care and related services to patients at Mercy Hospitals.  Our anesthesiologists and anesthetists provide anesthetic care in 35 operating rooms at this location. Group members are considered part of a team, and a culture of professionalism and shared mission is why many of our professionals become career-long employees.

Annually, an estimated 40,000 patients are treated in surgical services including:

  • Acute, post-operative and chronic pain management

  • General, pediatric

  • Gynecology

  • Heart transplants

  • MRI

  • Neurosurgery

  • Obstetrics

  • Orthopedics

  • Pediatric and adult cardiovascular

  • Pediatric diagnostic procedures

  • Plastic surgery

  • Radiology

  • Trauma

  • Urology

All of our physicians obtain board certification in anesthesiology.  Members
 of the group have served in official capacities for the Missouri Society of Anesthesiologists.  In addition, members have served a variety of important
posts in the American Medical Association, Missouri Medical Association, and the American Society of Anesthesiologists.

We sincerely hope you will consider
becoming a member of our professional team.
