About AAPA

AAPA has a long history of service in the Twin Cities. Starting in the early 1950’s, we established a solid reputation in anesthesia care at Miller Hospital (United Hospital) and St. Paul Children’s Hospital. In 1997, we grew in size when we merged with St. Paul anesthesiologists. We also expanded our coverage to include the HealthEast Care System (now M Health Fairview). AAPA has continued to grow through the years in large part due to our ongoing collaboration with the sites that we service and our commitment to our patients. In recent years we have expanded our practice to include multiple ambulatory surgical centers across the Twin Cities in Vadnais Heights, Maplewood, Woodbury, and Minnetonka.

Our Mission

At AAPA, only the best will do.

Our mission is to provide exceptional anesthesia care to patients and their families. We are dedicated to providing high-quality, evidence-based, safe anesthesia care for the populations we serve by working collaboratively with patients, their families, and other members of the health care team.
