Emergency Medicine

TeamHealth’s emergency medicine services provide sustainable solutions to improve clinical throughput, enhance patient care and optimize ED efficiency.


Performance through partnership

Patient care excels in an environment that values teamwork. And it’s this culture of collaboration that has helped us drop LPMSE rates by over 51% within a year of partnership while simultaneously increasing patient satisfaction. We take the ED to a new level of efficiency and excellence thanks to our open, communicative relationships among business leaders and our many clinicians.

Performing above the rest in innovation and outcomes

We love that our clients love us—so much so that our client retention rate is an industry-leading 98%. So why do hospitals choose and stay with TeamHealth?

We outperform other groups in Emergency Medicine innovation, medical director leadership, recruiting and retaining the best emergency clinicians, and improving clinical throughput times. In all of these areas, we stand out in our ability to deliver on our promises through a winning combination of cutting-edge healthcare technology, teamwork, and LEAN processes.

And since no two hospitals are the same, we tap into our local knowledge and teams around the country to understand the unique issues you face in your region, before sharpening our solutions to make sure your specific goals are met.
