A Snapshot of An Emergency Physician's Life in Eastern Connecticut
Located in beautiful eastern Connecticut, Northeast Emergency Medicine Specialists (NEMS) is a democratic physician partnership that has been providing excellence in Emergency Medicine since 2008. They work with more than 30 providers at two practice locations -- Windham Hospital and Johnson Memorial Hospital. As a result, NEMS cares for over 58,000 patients annually.
NEMS is one of three independent, democratic and physician-owned groups within Connecticut. According to the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), a benefit to being a part of a democratic group is that they offer physicians an equal voice and responsibility for providing high quality medical care and service to the community. The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) goes as far as to call democratic groups an ideal practice model for emergency physicians. Many emergency physicians are attracted to the political and financial equity offered by democratic groups, and the ability to fully benefit from the group’s success.
We think NEMS offers emergency physicians a fantastic opportunity to practice emergency medicine on its own (did we mention the option for partnership and the generous employer retirement contribution?), however NEMS is also conveniently located in the beautiful eastern Connecticut community of Willimantic, Connecticut.
