Celebrating 50 Years in Emergency Medicine


Emergency Physicians Professional Association (EPPA) was founded in 1969 and is owned and governed by its participating physicians. We take pride in our culture of mutual respect and camaraderie. Our culture is the secret behind EPPA's attraction and successful tradition. Our physician group teams more than 300 board-certified emergency physicians, family practice physicians and advanced practice clinicians (APCs) including physician assistants and nurse practitioners to provide expert emergency care efficiently and effectively. Our providers staff hospital emergency departments across the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and rural Minnesota. We also own and staff our three east-metro Urgency Room locations.

Our Culture

At EPPA, our culture is strongly focused on the success of our providers and employees.  We foster an environment which supports individual growth both personally and professionally.  Our strong leadership consists of hospital medical directors, assistant medical directors, senior leadership and management teams along with the support of multiple development committees.  This support encourages the group to work together as a team on what we value most, excellence in emergency medicine.  We believe this support generates satisfied, successful professionals and an extraordinary provider group.  We continually maintain impressive partner and employee retention rates and we believe the strong influence of our organizational culture is the driving force. 


EPPA will provide an innovative, stable and supportive platform to practice acute care medicine as an independent group. This framework allows our health professionals the best opportunity to align with our partners in delivering world-class care for our patients.


Through the pursuit of excellence, EPPA will be the premier provider of acute care
medicine in the markets we serve.
