title
Adopt a resolution authorizing an agreement with Medical Anesthesia Consultants Medical Group, Inc., to provide specialty anesthesia and pain management services, for the term of March 1, 2021 through February 28, 2024 for an amount not to exceed $6,800,000.

BACKGROUND:
On February 25, 2020, SMMC completed an RFP for specialty anesthesia services and pain management services. Due to COVID-19 and ongoing negotiations with the potential vendors, the selection of the new contract was delayed. Ultimately, Medical Anesthesia Consultants Medical Group, Inc., (MAC) was selected. MAC was previously known as Golden State Anesthesia Consultants, Inc. (Golden State). Golden State has been providing anesthesia and pain management services at SMMC since 2013.

DISCUSSION:
SMMC has a continuing need for anesthesia and pain management services. SMMC has chosen to continue its relationship with MAC/Golden State based on their performance, availability and fiscally sound proposal.

The agreement and resolution have been reviewed and approved by County Counsel as to form.

The resolution contains the County's standard provisions allowing amendment of the County fiscal obligations by a maximum of $25,000 (in aggregate).

It is anticipated that there will be no case cancellations by anesthesia for pre-existing conditions within one month of the procedure date (for surgeries scheduled less than 30 days in advance, within 24 hours of receiving the chart).
