Our History

MAK Anesthesia was founded by a team of forward-thinking physicians in 2011 whom held a common belief that patient safety and quality outcomes were the cornerstones to an effective anesthesia practice.  Today, those beliefs are foundational to each and every decision we make as an organization. These beliefs have served us well as the organization has grown to serve three hospitals and over a dozen outpatient and office based facilities in various specialities including orthopedics, general surgery and ophthamology among others.

In 2016, Strategic Health Partners was established as the group's consulting branch, serving healthcare organizations throughout the United States seeking assistance and improvement in the areas of:

  • Assessment of anesthesia services
  • Credentialing review and management
  • Request For Proposal (RFP) for facilities seeking anesthesia services

Since then, SHP consultants has had multiple successful engagements with hospitals and health systems and improved perioperative processes for the administration and anesthesia teams. 


The mission of MAK Anesthesia is to improve the lives of those we serve. 

We understand the success of our mission is highly dependent upon the culture in which we exist.  As the healthcare environment continues to evolve from fee for service to global payments within the era of "population health", it is more important than ever to substantiate who we are as an anesthesia practice.  Sam Parker developed a leadership strategy through his company GiveMore.com that speaks to exactly where we fit as an anesthesia group.   Essentially, 212 is the temperature at which steam can power a train; it's the extra effort (or the extra degree).  We recognize that one extra degree can make all the difference in the life of our patients, the success of the organizations we serve, and our ability to serve our communities with a philanthropic focus.
