About Emergency Physicians Associates

Our Model of Democratic Emergency Medicine

In today's corporate healthcare landscape, Emergency Physicians Associates (EPA) stands as a beacon of independence and self-governance. Unlike many others, we are not overseen by a detached corporate office. Instead, we believe that lasting career satisfaction is best achieved through democratic Emergency Medicine — a partnership within an independent, self-managed group.

At EPA, our collective passion is centered on delivering the highest quality Emergency Medical care. We place immense value on building trust and fostering open communication, not only among our colleagues but also with our hospital partners. Together, we work towards the common goal of providing exceptional care to our communities.
