Providing anesthesia services to Maryland Hospitals since 1965.

Welcome to Physicians Anesthesia Associates

Physicians Anesthesia Associates, P.A. (PAA) has been the sole provider of anesthesia services at Greater Baltimore Medical Center since the hospital's inception in 1965. All of our physicians are Board Certified in Anesthesiology. Many of our physicians have additional fellowship training in one or more anesthesia sub-specialty areas (i.e., pediatrics, thoracic, obstetrics, and pain management). Furthermore, several members of PAA currently hold faculty appointments at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

In addition, to its physician members, PAA also employs highly trained and experienced certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNA). Anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists work closely together to deliver high quality patient care. Anesthesia services at GBMC are delivered either by an anesthesiologist alone or an anesthesiologist/CRNA team directed by the physician. Physician Anesthesia Associates, P.A. is committed to providing exceptional anesthesia care to each patient at GBMC.
