Doctor's Day
Physicians are the cornerstone of EmCare. Not only do we support some of the most talented physicians in the country, but EmCare was founded by a physician. That means that from our humble beginnings in 1972, to our current position as one of the largest physician management companies in the nation, EmCare continues to be a physician-led company.

Our commitment to physician leadership is demonstrated by our programs of continuing education and training to build leadership skills to help our physicians make health care work better across the country.

This Doctors Day, we’re taking a moment to highlight a just a few of our amazing doctors for their awards, achievements and the many ways they illustrate excellence in patient care throughout their communities.

Get to know these outstanding physicians.
