About Us

Committed to Providing Excellence 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 spanning over half a century.

Our physician group teams more than 300 board-certified emergency 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.  Read our Annual Report.
