Mid-South Anesthesia Consultants currently provides anesthesia services to two tertiary care hospitals and an ambulatory surgery center as well as medicinal and interventional pain management in its Pain Management Clinic.
Beginning the journey
Mid-South Anesthesia Consultants was founded in 2000 by Dr. Jovie Bridgewater, M.D. He provided anesthesia services at Baptist Memorial Hospital-Desoto with limited physician assistance until 2004.
Strengthening the team

In that same year, Dr. Sandra Reed, M.D. joined Dr. Bridgewater and Dr. Jones.
Signing an exclusive contract
In that same year that Dr. Sandra Reed joined Dr. Bridgewater and Dr. Jones, Mid-South Anesthesia Consultants signed an exclusive contract to provide anesthesia services at the Baptist-Desoto Ambulatory Surgery Center in Southaven, Mississippi.
Advancing towards excellence
Dr Dennis McCoy, M.D. joined the group a few years later and the Mid-South Anesthesia Consultants Center for Pain Management and Research opened shortly thereafter.
