Whether you see an IEP provider in one of their seven Urgent Care clinics or in the Emergency Departments of several metro Detroit hospitals, you know you are in good hands.
IEP is owned by local physicians, which means that their business is focused on doing the right thing for patients. “We are business owners, but we are first and foremost doctors,“ said David Hall, MD, President & CEO of IEP. “We all work clinically taking care of patients in addition to leading a company that began in Emergency Medicine and has grown into Hospital Medicine, Observation Medicine, and most recently our expansion into Urgent Care Medicine services.”
IEP partners with hospitals to provide acute care for sick patients. “We know a visit to the hospital can be scary and confusing for patients. Our providers work as one expert care team of Emergency, Observation & Hospital Medicine providers, so patients experience coordinated care at every step of their healthcare journey,” said Hall. And with IEP’s seven Urgent Care clinics in Bloomfield Hills, Grosse Pointe, Clinton Township, Brighton, Jackson, Southfield and Novi, IEP providers can now see patients outside of the hospital setting. “We want patients to get the right care, at the right time, in the right place. If care for non-life-threatening situations can be given outside of the hospital, it saves time and money for patients. It also helps ensure that hospital resources are directed to the sickest patients who need them most.”
IEP’s success is a direct result of their culture of physician ownership. Named one of Modern Healthcare’s top 5 Best Places to Work, IEP providers touch more than 400,000 patient lives annually at Ascension, Henry Ford, and Trinity Health hospitals and at their urgent care locations.
“2022 is a milestone year for us. Eight of our physicians were selected as Top Docs by their peers, we are celebrating 25 years of service to our communities, and we are opening our eighth Urgent Care location in Ferndale, “said Hall. “Our goal for the next 25 years is that every hospital wants to partner with IEP and every patient wants to be seen by an IEP provider,” said Hall.
It’s a big goal but one that IEP is well on their way to achieving as they continue to grow while remaining true to their local, emergency physicianowned roots. Ind
