NEED Physicians Announces Addition of Per Diem Emergency Medical Physician Assistants Program

January 20 19:15 2021

NEED Physicians (NEED), a leader in the New England medical community recognized for providing high quality and experienced per diem emergency physicians to regional hospitals, today announced its expansion into the provision of high-quality Emergency Medicine Physician Assistants (EMPAs) on a per diem basis. The move is a pre-emptive response to anticipated increases in ED patient volumes that will drive higher demand for variable staffing solutions in emergency healthcare services. 

“NEED’s singular focus and deep understanding of emergency medicine has enabled us to create a novel approach to per diem staffing. Our dependable programs empower ED medical directors to quickly and easily access high caliber regional EM physicians. Providing high quality EM Physician Assistants is a natural and timely extension of our services. A vetted pool of talented per diem PAs will help our clients improve clinical, operational and financial metrics,” explained Ken Wolfe, NEED Physicians CEO.  

Physician Assistant (PA) utilization in the ED has risen steadily for the past ten to fifteen years. The challenge has become finding high quality PAs with both adequate emergency clinical experience and continuing education—clinicians who can function independently and proficiently in the increasingly challenging ED environment. “We’ve developed a specialized certification process to ensure that NEED-Certified EMPAs meet our standards for quality and dependability clinical care, and are prepared to deliver exceptional patient care from day one,” commented senior clinician Dr. Steve Grosse MD, EMPA Program Director who oversees the selection, credentialing, on-boarding and management of the selected physican assistants.
