LEXINGTON, Ky. (October 2, 2019) — AMR is pleased to welcome the American Osteopathic College of Anesthesiologists (AOCA) as a new full-service client partner.
AOCA is dedicated to the mission of promoting the osteopathic concept of disease, advancing the standards of practice, and providing an opportunity for training and education in the art and science of anesthesiology.
Nick Ruffin, CAE, President and CEO of AMR shared, “AOCA has been a strong advocate of osteopathic care and the field of anesthesiology since their inception in 1952. AMR is excited that we could bring our expertise and professional services to partner with AOCA as they enter the next phase of the organization.”
“The AOCA is enthusiastically looking forward to working with AMR,” AOCA Immediate Past President Dr. Tom Costello stated. “We outgrew our previous association management firm and after an in-depth evaluation of available management companies we feel AMR is the best company to meet our needs in continuing growth and improvement of quality of services to our members.”
