Why EMA?

EMA Can Turn Around Your ED Operations


Emergency Medical Associates specializes in emergency, observation, hospitalist and urgent care medicine. Our practice is recognized both locally and nationally for clinical excellence, quality service and sustained, improved patient satisfaction.

EMA was founded nearly 40 years ago and has steadily grown its client base over that time, with contracts at academic, community, urban, suburban and satellite facilities in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Rhode Island. The successful partnerships we’ve forged with our clients are reflected in the exceptional performance of our clients’ emergency departments.

Thinking and acting in perfect alignment to address each organization’s unique goals – clinical, operational and financial – is not just an approach but a way of life for us. In fact, Emergency Medical Associates was named to the 2012 Top Emergency Department Contractors list reported by Modern Healthcare.

With a reputation of having the highest-quality emergency physicians, EMA is known as the “Sign of Excellence in Emergency Medicine.” Our physicians are leaders in the field of emergency medicine on local, regional and national levels. Our unique model of physician ownership and operations means greater physician allegiance and commitment to our hospital partners. The ability for physicians to become full owners in EMA enables us to recruit and retain the highest caliber of physicians in emergency medicine.
