OUR VISION

I founded EMU Health with a specific goal-to make a difference in the lives of our Queens neighbors by providing high-quality health care in the communities where they live. Queens is a wonderful place – home to over 2.5 million people, it is the epi-center of the melting pot where health care providers are struggling to keep up with demand. The transition of national health care has made the situation worse in Queens. There are too few providers, while declining reimbursement and increasing costs all contribute to a bad recipe for the future of health care for our melting pot. EMU Health provides a dynamic opportunity for doctors to improve health care delivery. EMU Health is uniquely positioned to improve the day-to-day operations, financial management, and strategic planning for physicians, which allows providers the freedom to focus on what they do best – deliver great patient care. EMU Health seeks to partner with doctors to provide them with the management support they need in today’s world without sacrificing the ownership of their practices and the decision-making that is critical to helping people. I believe in helping people by making a difference in the quality of their lives. Our Ambulatory Surgical Center, Diagnostic Treatment Center, and Management Services Organization are the tools through which together, we can begin this worthy journey. I hope you will join EMU Health and become part of the solution.
