In keeping with its mission to provide the safest, high quality patient care, Nassau University Medical Center selected Somnia Anesthesia, a premier provider of anesthesia management and perioperative medicine services to oversee its anesthesia department. As they do at leading hospitals and ambulatory sites across the country, Somnia’s quarter century of expertise in the provision of anesthesia along with its network of superior anesthesiologists and nurse anesthetists ensure patients receive the best possible care and surgical staff the highest level of support.
Reprising his role as Chairman of the Anesthesiology Department, a position he held previously from 2007 to 2010, is Paul Weinberg, MD, FASA, who returned to NUMC in 2019. A native of Long Island, Dr. Weinberg graduated the Albert Einstein College of Medicine with Distinction in Research in Cardiology, subsequently completing his residency in Anesthesiology at NYU Medical Center and a Fellowship in Cardio-Thoracic Anesthesia at Albert Einstein and Montefiore Medical Center.
From 1988 to 2007, Dr. Weinberg was a partner in a private anesthesia group that provided services to the Catholic Medical Centers of Brooklyn and Queens. During that time, he held several positions including Director of Anesthesiology and Medical Director of the Queens Surgical Community Center, Director of Anesthesiology and Pain Management at Mary Immaculate Hospital, and a managing partner of Boulevard Anesthesia Associates. When not fully immersed in anesthesiology, he enjoys cycling, skiing, and reading medieval literature.
In addition to his current role as department chair, Dr. Weinberg serves as Program Director of NUMC’s Anesthesiology Remediation and Refresher Program [“ARRP”]. Established in early 2021, ARRP holds the mission to provide broad experience in hospital anesthesiology and perioperative medicine in a supportive learning environment to anesthesiologists who fall into one of three cohorts:
Cohort I. Ambulatory anesthesiologists who now wish to work in the hospital setting.
Cohort II. Anesthesiologists who have been away from medicine and wish to return.
Cohort III. Anesthesiologists only able to work in a structured environment per the DOH/OPMC.
