NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – Mar 29, 2016) –
Today, EMU Health announced the acquisition of Queens Surgical Center (QSC) to better meet the healthcare needs of the Queens community.

About EMU Health
Queens is the most diverse urban area in the entire world and home to two and a half million people. Yet, its residents are often compelled to seek quality healthcare outside the borough. Why is this? Because that’s just the way things have always been. But Daniel Lowy isn’t content with how things have always been, or how they are. He sees how things should be, and he makes them happen. Like the indigenous Australian emu that cannot walk backwards, Daniel is an Aussie that’s always moving forward. Daniel founded EMU, Efficient Medical Utilization, to capture business efficiencies so that medical practitioners can focus on providing every patient with the highest quality healthcare possible. EMU moves healthcare forward to benefit every resident of Queens. Visit http://www.emuhealth.com/ for more information.
