Emergency Care Partners finalizes its merger with Chicago’s IEMS

With rising cases of roadside accidents worldwide, the need for emergency medical facilities have increased considerably in recent years. These facilities offer immediate assistance without any appointments, which makes them the go-to place for treating diseases and injuries.

Emergency Care Partners (ECP) is one such provider of outsourced emergency department management services and emergency medicine to medical facilities around New York, Pennsylvania and Louisiana. The company has recently finalized its strategic merger with IEMS (Illinois Emergency Medicine Specialists), a medical group that offers outsourced emergency department management services.

Speaking on the move, Bill Yarbrough, CEO, Emergency Care Partners, said that the company is thrilled to accept IEMS as a group member. Moreover, the strength of IEMS’s local health system relationships and its vast experience as physician partners makes it the perfect addition to their company’s national group.

Reportedly, the newly formed emergency medicine service will offer departmental operations at 26 clinics and hospitals, along with a shared clinical staff of 600 mid-level providers and physicians, handling an estimate of 900,000 ER patient visits yearly.

Sources cite that IEMS’s physician partners will also join ECP shareholders along with Ted Patras, M.D., who will stay as the President of the Chicago based emergency medicine specialist.

Incidentally, the U.S. healthcare sector is witnessing numerous mergers lately. For instance, recently WellNow Urgent Care, a New York-based leading providers of urgent care, ventured with St. Peter's Health Partners that would add both the firms name on two WellNow’s operations and six operating locations handled by St. Peter's in the Capital Region.

Reportedly, WellNow's Hudson and Niskayuna facilities will be the initial places that would be redesigned as co-branded facilities. The centers will be open 24/7 and will not need any prior appointments.

Moreover, they would have professional medical personnel that would treat non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries like abrasions, burns, coughs, dehydration, sprains, colds, strains and several other cases.

As for the merger with ECP, Dr. Ted Patras, M.D., President, IEMS, said that their company is delighted with the opportunities to join with ECP’s team as the new partnership would enable it to provide the best patient experiences and quality outcomes, and to bring enhanced efficiencies for the complete health system.
