Asheville Anesthesia Associates (originally formed in 1971) announces that effective July 1, 2013 its new name will be AllCare Clinical Associates, PA.
"The new name reflects the practice’s increasing presence outside of Asheville and its growing array of services including anesthesia and chronic pain care," said Dr. Rodney Pugh, President of the group. “There is no change in ownership occurring. We are the same group, just in more places and providing more services," he said.
AllCare Clinical Associates, http://www.allcareclinical.com, is one of the largest private physician-owned practices serving North Carolina and provides anesthesia and pain services for over 70,000 medical procedures annually. The practice employs nearly 200 Anesthesiologists, Pain Specialists, Anesthetists and administrative personnel and provides services at a wide array of practices, surgery centers, pain clinics and hospitals.
