An Open Letter of Gratitude to Our IAA Team

The following is an open letter of gratitude to our team at Integrated Anesthesia Associates and the greater community from executive director, Joseph Vitarelli, PAHM and the entire Integrated Anesthesia Associates Executive Administrative team.

May 27, 2020

IAA Team – As discussions have begun across the state to resume elective surgeries, we have been reflecting on the past couple of months and all that we have been through and accomplished during this most unprecedented time.

Outside of the exceptional job that all members of our clinical team did with great skill, courage and resilience, we also were on the receiving end of many acts of kindness that our team and partner facilities benefited from.

These came by way of direct relationships that IAA members had with personal and professional contacts that helped secure much needed PPE and other well appreciated items from not ONLY our local communities, but from connections throughout the world.

On behalf of our team, we would like to personally thank each of the following key person(s) and / or organizations for helping with generous donations. These items were key to protecting what is most important to us – Each and EVERY member of our IAA Team.

Thank you to the following individuals and organizations. Your generous contributions provided encouragement and assisted with our clinical team’s abilities to provide the exceptional care that we pride ourselves on delivering with the proper protection to do so. YOU helped save lives.
