SAS enjoys the advantages of practicing within the top notch facilities of Baystate Medical center, while maintaining the close-knit, personal qualities of a physician-owned and managed private practice. Our team has chosen the Pioneer Valley as the place to live and work, for its natural beauty, vibrant cultural life and its proximity to our major metropolitan areas, ocean beaches and mountains of New England and New York.
"You name it and we do it – from the tiniest neonate to the oldest geriatric patient – from “bread and butter” cases, to the most complex. We have many wonderful opportunities to keep expanding our practice and gain expertise. While no one does the same thing all the time, the development of “core groups” has enabled us to provide superior specialty care to our patients… and patient care is paramount."- James Khoury, MD, SAS Director of Clinical Affairs
"You have spent many years in school and hours in the OR. You can apply your knowledge and experience to participate and lead in research to benefit our peers and patients. With our active residency and fellowship programs in pain management, you also can help train the next generations of top anesthetists and physicians. SAS is proud of the variety and depth of our research in fields such as pain management, obstetrical anesthesia, and pediatric airway management. Many of our manuscripts are cited in other articles, a testimony to the caliber of our scholarship."- Neil R. Connelly, MD, Director of Anesthesia Research, President of SAS
"Working for SAS combines the benefits of academic medicine with the rewards or a private practice. As an independent corporation, we control the details of our lifestyles and business. At the same time, participating in a vibrant residency program keeps us close to the basic sciences and cutting edge innovations which brought most of us to anesthesia in the first place. Working every day with young, enthusiastic trainees, who are eager to learn about the things which can become routine in a straight-up private practice, keeps our jobs fresh and exciting."- Scott Switzer, DO Vice-President, SAS
"The nice thing about SAS is that you can find the niche that makes you happy. This can range from working in one of the ambulatory centers or small community hospitals, to becoming part of a core team member in pediatrics, cardiac, obstetrics, or other teams in the tertiary care environment. Whatever your interests, SAS can find the perfect place for you."– Steven Dunn, MD
"Every day we should feel engaged, motivated, appreciated, valued and even celebrated, while providing expert patient care in our anesthesia care team model."- Michael T. Bailin, MD, Chairman of Anesthesiology
"We are the perfect hybrid situation for those with strong academic training – we practice “Boston-style” academic medicine and yet we are a private practice group. The quality and standards here are second to none… from the standpoint of case mix and excitement, we see it all and do it all here, with few exceptions."- Donald Schwartz, MD, Director of Pediatric Anesthesia
