Over the past 40 years, NES Health has addressed and resolved performance issues in hundreds of emergency departments across the nation, from quality of medical care to patient satisfaction. Its findings have been translated into an innovative suite of tools, systems, and programs that enable hospital leaders to correct deficiencies and enhance the patient experience.
This year, NES Health celebrates 40 years of providing outsourced emergency physician staffing and management services for hospitals. Founded in 1975 in Tiburon, CA by physician Allan Rappaport, M.D., JD, NES Health today manages emergency departments at US hospitals stretching across the country from Connecticut to Washington and from Alaska to southern Georgia.
“Dr. Rappaport is a true visionary, entrepreneur and leader who took steps that were complex and challenging to found NES Health and make it successful,” says Thomas Zguris, MD, MBA, FACEP, President and CEO of NES Health. “Only the rudiments of the specialty of emergency medicine existed in 1975, and it would take a major effort by many physician and hospital leaders to have the specialty officially accepted and allow its rapid formation across the country.”
In 1975, NES Health was launched with just three employees. It wasn’t until four years later, in 1979, that emergency medicine was approved as the 23rd U.S. Medical specialty—and a decade later, it became a primary Board in the American Board of Medical Specialties. Throughout the formative years of emergency medicine, Rappaport was a calm, collected leader of NES Health, analyzing processes, reacting to roadblocks and making the right decisions.
“I am honored to be a part of a world class team changing the way emergency departments respond to the challenges affecting every community’s healthcare safety net,” added Jennifer Moore, CPA, MBA, MHA, Chief Administrative Officer/CFO. “NES Health has matured into a dynamic company capable of transforming struggling emergency departments into high performers.” Forty years after its founding, the company has grown to staff and manage emergency departments across the U.S. NES Health will celebrate its 40th anniversary at its upcoming Medical Directors Academy in early September in Detroit.
