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. We now also serve Allenmore Hospital and the Gig Harbor Ambulatory Surgery Center.
Today the group is 40+ 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 Anesthesiology. We are active on multiple committees in the Multicare System, and we are passionate about serving the communities in which we live and work.
Every member of TAA is a board certified physician anesthesiologist.
