About the Organization
American Physician Partners (APP) is a new kind of emergency medicine and hospital medicine management company, created intentionally to exceed the expectations of the patients we care for, the physicians and advanced practice clinicians we worth with, and the hospitals who partner with us.
Founded in 2015, we have doubled our size each year as more hospitals and clinicians recognize the value of our model. Today our 2500+ physicians and advanced practice clinicians care for over 4 million patients annually at 170+ practice sites.
Despite our growth, we havent lost sight of our culture and what makes us differentthe fact that we are a physician-centric, patient-focused organization. Focusing on transformational leadership and using a metric-driven approach, our programs offer practice stability and deliver significant and sustainable quality improvements.
About the Community
Every one of our practices has a Site Medical Director who serves as the leader of the provider team and is APPs liaison to the hospital. Because of the critical nature of this role, we make a significant investment in hiring, onboarding, developing, and training these physician leaders. On a daily basis, they have real-time access to the metrics for their departments, enabling them to truly own the performance of their EDs. They receive extensive support and mentoring from their regional dyad leadership team and have access to the comprehensive resources provided by our Support Center, including recruiting, credentialing, scheduling, provider enrollment, human resources, IT, etc. The business side of the practice is taken care of for them so they can devote their time to developing strong working relationships with the medical staff, the ED Nurse Manager, and leading their teams.
