PARSIPPANY, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 10/10/13 -- Emergency Medical Associates (EMA) has experienced record growth during the last 18 months, signing 9 new contracts and increasing its number of annual emergency department patient visits by nearly 35 percent.
Since April 2012, Emergency Medical Associates has grown its client base from 19 emergency departments to 28 emergency departments in New Jersey, New York, North Carolina and Rhode Island -- 47 percent increase. This growth has increased the company's annual number of ED patient visits to nearly 1.4 million.
"It's an exciting time in our history," explains Raymond Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, president and chief executive officer. "While we've expanded our footprint exponentially over the last year and half, we've continued to invest in our physicians, mid-levels, support staff and technology to continue to deliver the high-quality emergency medicine that has been our gold standard."
It's this commitment to its clinical staff that has led Emergency Medical Associates to be recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the "Best Places to Work in Healthcare" three times.
Physicians and mid-levels attending the 2013 American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly in Seattle from Oct. 14 to Oct. 17 are encouraged to visit Booth 1333 to meet physician partners to learn first-hand why a great EM career is no longer just a myth.
The company's personalized iPad recruiting application enables recruiters to quickly match a physician's geographic, lifestyle and facility preferences to the right career position. Recruiters and physician partners will be onsite during ACEP's Scientific Assembly to meet with physicians and residents to discuss career opportunities, including emergency medicine, urgent care and observation medicine positions.
