Welcome To Emu Health

EMU Health was founded by Mr. Daniel J. Lowy in March of 2016 after the acquisition of Queens Surgical Center (‘QSC”).  QSC is the second ambulatory surgical center Mr. Lowy has developed, the center has been providing services to the Queens community for 25 years with surgeons at QSC having performed 6,000 ambulatory surgeries per year.

An established participant in the Queens medical community Mr. Lowy, Founder and CEO of EMU Health intends to bring EMU’s vision of providing all residents of the various communities in Queens with the highest quality medical and surgical services in one convenient state of the art professional and caring environment that will not only treat patients but educate them for better healthcare.

EMU is already uniquely positioned to deliver surgical solutions to physicians and their patients as we now have expanded our services to the communities with the addition of an on-site Diagnostic Testing and Treatment center and a Women’s Health center in one convenient outpatient setting.

EMU Health has already committed an initial investment of $5 million towards the infrastructure of a state of the art facility so that our elite group of physicians and surgeons are able to continue providing their patients with the highest quality service in a unique top of the line facility.

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.
