The strength of QESI starts with size. In 1984, the practice was started by a group of physicians who wanted to keep the physician at the heart of the business ensuring that they were a part of every decision made by the group. Since that time, QESI has grown to include more than 40 physicians and 15 Advance Practice Providers while still maintaining the intimacy of a small group.


Our Mission is to provide innovative, personal, patient centered emergency care . In order to accomplish this we must provide the best practice opportunity for our emergency physicians as follows:

  • Provide strong administrative support to our partners, freeing them to practice unencumbered, while allowing opportunity to those wishing to diversify their careers with administrative experience.
  • Provide our hospitals and hospital-systems the highest quality of administrative support that is innovative, dedicated and responsive to change.
  • Promote the practice of emergency medicine and the health of our community through mentorship of the public, EMS personnel, nurses and allied health professionals, as well as medical students and residents.
  • Provide medical direction, education, and advocacy for emergency medical services in our area.
  • Encourage physician involvement in hospital leadership positions as a means to grow and shape the environments in which we practice.
  • Provide a sustainable business model that allows for recruitment and retention of the highest quality physicians and mid-level providers
