Physician of the Year: Anesthesiology

2015 Ace Award Presented to California Anesthesiologist
EmCare Honors Dr. Ali Manoochehrian with National Recognition

ORLANDO, FLA. (April 7, 2015) – The medical director for five hospitals in the Victorville, Calif. area has been selected for the 2015 Ace Award.  Ali Manoochehrian, M.D., was chosen for the honor. The award is presented by EmCare, a leading national physician practice management company, and singles out a sole anesthesiologist for the honor each year.

“I was very surprised that I won the Ace Award this year,” said Dr. Manoochehrian. “I am so honored.”
“Dr. Manoochehrian is a very valued member of the EmCare Anesthesia Services Team,” says Michael Hicks, M.D., CEO of EmCare Anesthesia Services. “His patient care is exceptional, his clinical skills and leadership are all spectacular.”

The anesthesia departments led by Dr. Manoochehrian include Victorville Valley Global Medical Center in Victorville, Calif.; Palmdale Regional Medical Center in Palmdale, Calif.; Barstow Community Hospital in Barstow, Calif.; Valley Presbyterian Hospital in Van Nuys, Calif. and Physicians Surgery Center in Victorville, Calif.

Dr. Manoochehrian is lauded for his anesthesia skills, especially nerve blocks for orthopedic surgeries, as well as attentive patient care. Colleagues describe him as an effective leader with a collaborative spirit. He earned his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in Dominica, West Indies. His residency in anesthesia was completed at the University of Southern California Medical Center.

Dr. Manoochehrian was honored with the Ace Award during EmCare’s annual Leadership Conference. The 2015 convention was held at Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Fla. March 30 – April 1. While the Ace Award recognizes a single anesthesiologist from across the United States, EmCare also annually honors individuals from emergency medicine, radiology and hospital medicine as its Physicians of the Year.

Congratulations to Dr. Manoochehrian! Thanks for sharing more about his work and his experience.
