Welcome to Meridian Medical Solutions

Meridian Medical Solutions is owned and operated by a team of professionals who are dedicated to providing outstanding clinical care. We are an administrative and management group for anesthesiology services in California. We’re not just anesthesiologists-for-hire, though – we’re also a full-service anesthesiology solution.

We’re not like other anesthesiology services available. Here are just a few ways we stand out from the crowd:

  • All our members are board-certified or eligible anesthesiologists who adhere to the highest clinical, professional and ethical standards.
  • They aren’t just highly-skilled – they’re also a deeply compassionate and caring group of physicians who are culturally sensitive as well.
  • We have a deep understanding of the business of healthcare, using our unique management and compensation model to improve OR efficiency.
  • We keep up to date on the latest knowledge in federal and state medical regulations and requirements so you don’t have to.
  • Our commitment to price transparency means you’ll get peace of mind instead of uncertainty and unpleasant surprises.

Meridian Medical Solutions has grown to its current size by providing professional services in multiple hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers in California. Our diverse model allows us to provide services to all practice settings including medical centers, community hospitals, surgery centers, physician and dental offices and pain centers – all in rural, urban or suburban markets.

Meridian Medical Solutions’ focus is on clinical excellence, enhanced operating room performance, and full surgeon and patient satisfaction. We are singularly focused on anesthesia, enabling us to position our clients for success in a challenging pay-for-performance healthcare environment.
