Over the last 10 years, our physician partners have become leaders at the state and national level for advocacy efforts to improve clinical initiatives as well as ensure continued financial viability for Emergency Medicine.
We are committed to providing high-quality patient care. Great patient care at EMS means:
While our sites, the number of providers, and service lines have expanded, our dedication to patient-centered care, service, and excellence has remained unchanged. EMS is currently supported by over a hundred physicians, many of which are full-time, equal partners. Equal ownership is a core value of EMS and is the key to our continued success and maintenance of high quality. EMS also employs over a hundred APCs and utilizes them in various capacities across all of our sites. EMS leadership supports our physicians and APCs regarding Quality, Wellness, Compensation, Business Strategy, APC Engagement, and Information Technology.
Great Service at EMS means:
Working at EMS means taking an active part in running the business. Our work makes a difference.

Our success stems from our focus on our relationships – our relationships with our patients, community, health system, and with each other.
Emergency Medicine Specialists was established in 1983 at St. Michael’s Hospital in Milwaukee, WI. In the 40-year history of EMS, our reputation for clinical excellence, our focus on quality, and our leadership within our hospital system have been recognized throughout Wisconsin and nationally. With this recognition came growth as our expert services were sought out by hospitals.
In addition to over 400,000 patients served annually, EMS provides exceptional services in prehospital, observation, wound, hyperbaric, and urgent care. EMS is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of acute unscheduled care to meet the coming changes in healthcare. Our physician owners also own and operate our revenue cycle management company, ConsensioHealth. This provides a unique perspective on revenue cycle operations and documentation practices.
The ownership mentality that is imbued in our physicians and the focus on professional development leads many EMS physicians to become leaders in their local, regional, and national fields. Serving locally while thinking nationally brings the best value to our patients, hospitals, and communities.
Local Involvement and Leadership Matter
Our goal is to have local physicians that live in and are invested in their communities and hospitals. Current EMS serve in a variety of leadership roles in the local, regional, and national healthcare community:
Hold ourselves to the highest standards of patient care
Give service that exceeds what is expected
Show compassion and care in all our actions
Positively impact as many lives as possible
Serving our community for over 40 years.
