Leading the charge in value-based medicine, EMA recognizes the emergency department is not always the most appropriate or cost effective location for patients to receive medical care. Demonstrating this concept, EMA has partnered with a number of facilities to provide physician and mid-level staffing within the urgent care setting. Our goal is to provide urgent care facilities with high quality, high efficiency providers that differentiate themselves in a service line that sometimes struggles with provider quality and continuity of standards.
Many groups laud the concept of "care continuum," often touting the sense that they are able to staff both the emergency department and hospital medicine program. What's missing from that equation is critical care medicine. EMA's critical care service line provides 24/7 coverage of our hospital partner's intensive care units and house-wide consultation. Our providers are board-certified, fellowship trained and industry leaders in their field. EMA recognizes there are vast efficiencies when the care continuum is truly a team effort.
In coordination with EMA's expansive pediatric service line, our team of board-certified, fellowship trained neonatologists provide physician coverage of the neonatal intensive care unit in addition to hospital-wide consultation and attendance at deliveries. With over 20 years' experience in this service line, EMA has a demonstrated ability to scale and meet the dynamic landscape and needs of neonatal medicine.
