Kettering Anesthesia Associates (KAA) is an Ohio based Anesthesia Practice that was incorporated on March 1, 1967. Since the inception of this practice they have predominately partnered with the Kettering Health Network at its main facility, Kettering Medical Center and also the Sycamore campus. Other Kettering Health Network Partners are Dayton Eye Surgery Center, Greater Dayton Surgery Center, Greene Memorial Hospital, and Soin Medical Center. KAA also provides coverage to Plastic Surgery Institute as well as two rural hospitals, Wilson Memorial Hospital and Wayne Hospital.
KAA consist of 23 Physician Partners, and employs around 115 full and part time CRNA’s and Anesthesiologists. The educational backgrounds of our Physicians cover a highly esteemed curriculum. Residencies include Loma Linda University, Wright State University, Ohio State University, University of Cincinnati, Emory, Indiana University, West Virginia, Oral Roberts, and Duke. Our Anesthesiologist’s are certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology and our CRNAs are certified by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists.
Our staffing model is the medically directed anesthesia care team approach, where an Anesthesiologist medically directs between 2 and 4 CRNAs, alternatively, Anesthesiologists may do their own cases. This type of coverage allows us to provide preoperative evaluation and preparation including blocks if needed, intraoperative supervision and assistance, and postoperative care as needed.
