Allied Anesthesia

We work in a collaborative manner to provide the best medical care possible

Two regional publications recognized 11 physicians from Allied Anesthesia in Santa Ana, Calif., for their leadership, achievements and contributions in their January editions.

Drs. Cliff Char, Ian Chait, Klane Hales, Jack Canton, Eric Ontiveros, Alejandro Ramirez and Paul Yost were selected for inclusion on the Southern California Super Doctors 2014 list compiled by Key Professional Media and published in Los Angeles Magazine. The Southern California Super Doctors list represents about 5 percent of physicians in the region.

Drs. Armen Chalian, Jack Canton, Cliff Char, Klane Hales, Tony Ho, Phillip Richardson and Frank Sweeny were chosen by the Orange County Medical Association as "Physicians of Excellence" appearing in Orange Coast Magazine.

The chosen physicians were honored and humbled by the recognition. They extended their gratitude to the rest of the Allied Anesthesia physicians with whom they work.

“My recognition is really a reflection on those that I work with every day,” Hales said. “We work in a collaborative manner to provide the best medical care possible. Quality and excellence in our medical care remain our daily goal.”

Canton said, "I am most proud of the fact that so many Allied Anesthesia physicians were also recognized as this reflects the overall caliber of the physicians in our group and our unwavering commitment to delivering excellent patient care."

“Any member of Allied Anesthesia is just as deserving of this award,” Ontiveros said. “We all work together to deliver the quality and excellence to our patients that they deserve, treating every individual as if they were our own family member.”

Allied Anesthesia manages anesthesia services at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, which has one of the busiest and most efficient operating rooms in the state of California. The hospital was recently ranked among the top adult cardiac surgery centers in the country by the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and consistently receives high ranking for Orthopedics from US News and World Report.

The Super Doctors list identifies physicians who are well respected and recognized among their peers. A survey of doctors, who are invited to nominate colleagues, includes the question, "If you needed medical care in one of the following specialties, which doctor would you choose?" Each candidate undergoes an independent evaluation by research staff, a peer review by practice area and a good-standing and disciplinary check.

Candidates are evaluated on 10 indicators, including: years of experience; hospital appointments; fellowships; professional activities; leadership positions; academic achievements/positions; board certifications; publications, lectures and presentations; honors and awards, and other outstanding achievements.

Applicants selected for the 2014 Physicians of Excellence honor were required to meet at least two of the following four criteria: 1) Physician leadership; 2) Teaching/mentoring; 3) Humanitarian service; 4) Unique contributions, significant awards and recognitions related to substantial contributions in medicine, healthcare, or on behalf of humanity.
