EMpower Emergency Physicians is committed to providing integrated and exceptional health care to acute care hospitals and patients.
About EMpower Emergency Physicians
EMpower Emergency Physicians was founded in 2003 as a democratic physician managed group with eight original partners. The focus of the group was to help restructure and analyze business practices to improve patient care and satisfaction. Over the years the group has grown exponentially and now contracts with four medical centers in Arizona.
Our medical providers have a long history of both patient satisfaction and provider satisfaction. In addition, MDs and DOs are board certified or board eligible through the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
EMpower’s Emergency Physicians excel at improving the quality of care patients receive while increasing hospital revenue and standing in the communities they serve.

Join Our Team
We are looking for talented physicians, nurse practitioners and physicians assistants who share our commitment to patient care to join our team.
Using strategic LEAN-based solutions has allowed us to optimize hospitals’ key metrics like patient flow through rate.
The patient comes first. We are committed to improving the patient experience and decreasing the “left without being seen” rate.
Personalized care includes core metrics and quality indicators such as “door to doc time”, the length of stay in the emergency department and admission rates.
