Somnia Anesthesia Hosts Sixth Annual Anesthesiologist of the Year Award

Celebration Marks 2018 National Doctors’ Day

NEW ROCHELLE, NY (March 23, 2018) – Somnia Anesthesia, a national anesthesia practice management company, is once more marking National Doctors’ Day with its annual Anesthesiologist of the Year Award. The event, now in its sixth year, honors an outstanding anesthesiologist who is recognized by his/her peers for dedication, hard work, clinical excellence, and commitment to providing the highest quality care every day.

Doctors’ Day, first observed in the early 1930s, was chosen to coincide with the first use of general anesthesia in surgery. Signed into Public Law in 1990, Doctors’ Day was designated a national holiday to be celebrated each year on March 30.

Supporting a Critical Role in Healthcare
The success of this long-running program has prompted the launch of a companion award, Anesthesia Resident of the Year. This new national award recognizes the clinical and educational accomplishments and dedication to excellent patient care of an outstanding anesthesia resident. Nominations in each category may be made online by fellow anesthesiologists, anesthesia residents, certified registered nurse anesthetists, physicians, surgeons, or other healthcare professionals.

“As a physician anesthesiologist, healthcare executive, and patient, I understand, on many levels, the critical role doctors play in maintaining the wellbeing of society, and I am equally proud of part which anesthesiologists play in the provision of safe surgical patient care every day,” said Robert C. Goldstein, MD, EVP and chief medical officer at Somnia Anesthesia. “There are many times a doctor’s commitment, hard work, and sacrifice go unnoticed, so I am honored to acknowledge it through this symbol of Somnia’s sincere thanks and gratitude.”
