Our History

Shasta Anesthesia Consultants (SAC) has been providing anesthesia services in California’s North State area since its inception in 1992, though its roots far precede the corporate structure. In 1956, William H. Moon, MD founded the anesthesiology department at Mercy Medical Center and was the first board certified anesthesiologist to practice in the area. He was instrumental in recruiting high­ quality providers to the area and raising the standard of anesthesia care in the community. His son, Brian Moon, MD continues this development and is currently serving as the president of Shasta Anesthesia Consultants. While continuing to provide care for the diverse needs of patients at Mercy Medical Center in Redding, SAC has expanded to also offer care at an increasing number of facilities in the area. Shasta Anesthesia Consultants anticipates continuing this trend in the years to come, elevating the standard of anesthesia care across the region.


All of the anesthesiologists at SAC are board certified or board eligible in anesthesiology, and many specialize in other specific areas, including internal medicine, critical care and pediatrics.

Our providers are highly trained and draw from clinical and academic experiences to offer the highest level of care. We provide anesthetic care for a full spectrum of patients, conditions and surgical cases, including: Cardiothoracic, Neuro, Trauma, General Surgery, ENT, Plastics, GI/Endoscopy, Urology, OB/Gyn, Breast, Orthopedics, Hand, Joint Replacement, Outpatient/Ambulatory, Sedation, Podiatry, Dermatology, Spine, and Ophthalmology
