Since 1979, MEDNAX has evolved with the health care industry while giving our clinicians the tools and support they need to focus on patients – not paperwork. As we celebrate 40 years of success, we’d like to thank our partners in progress: our health care providers, administrative support staff, clinical peers, hospital partners and patients across the country. Now more than ever, health care is a collaborative effort.
Together, we will continue to take great
care of the patient, every day and in
Although Pediatrix Medical Group, Obstetrix Medical Group and Pediatrix Cardiology preceded the American Anesthesiology (founded in 2008), it remains the largest specialty within MEDNAX with 1,400+ physicians.
