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, EMU’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, is not 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 bird, the Emu, that cannot walk backwards, Daniel is an Aussie that is always moving forward. Daniel founded EMU, Efficient Medical Utilization, to provide every patient with the highest quality healthcare possible, and move healthcare forward to benefit every resident of Queens.
