Our History

Tacoma Anesthesia Associates (TAA) was founded in 1971 as a group of 5 physicians providing anesthesia services for Tacoma General Hospital. The group was affiliated with the University of Washington's anesthesia department until 1979. By 1980 the group had doubled in size and by 1990 it consisted of 25 anesthesiologists providing care for patients at Tacoma General Hospital, Mary Bridge Children's Hospital, and the Baker Day Surgery of Tacoma. Today the group is 36 members strong and includes subspecialists in pediatric anesthesia, pediatric cardiac anesthesia, adult cardiac anesthesia, and acute pain management. Our physicians are all board certified/eligible diplomates of the American Board of Anesthesia.
