Emergency Medical Associates Experiences Another Year of Growth

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwired - Dec 10, 2014) - Emergency Medical Associates (EMA) has experienced another year of growth in 2014, signing three new contracts and increasing its number of annual emergency department patient visits by 258,000 visits.

In 2014, Emergency Medical Associates began providing emergency department management services to Newark (N.J.) Beth Israel Medical Center, New York Hospital Queens, and The Good Samaritan Hospital, Lebanon, Pa. Due to this growth, EMA now staffs and manages 30 emergency departments in New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island. This growth has increased the company's annual number of ED patient visits to more than 1.5 million.

Additionally, the company's hospitalist medicine division, Inpatient Medical Associates, added three new contracts and nearly 50,000 inpatient visits in 2014, while its urgent care staffing and management division expects to treat more than 58,000 patients by year's end.

The company's strategic, measured growth was recognized in October when Emergency Medical Associates' chief financial officer Janice Klostermeier, CPA, FACHE, MHA, received the CFO of the Year Award for Best Growth Manager from NJ Biz magazine.

"We've been fortunate to see another year of continued growth," explains Raymond Iannaccone, MD, FACEP, FACHE, president and chief executive officer. "We continue to invest in our infrastructure and innovate our clinical and business processes, exceeding accepted standards in the industry to become a driving force in how emergency medicine is delivered."

The support of its clinical staff led Emergency Medical Associates to be recognized by Modern Healthcare as one of the "Best Places to Work in Healthcare" for the fourth time in 2014.
