The Company

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.


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.

Who We Are

Our physician group teams more than 200 board-certified emergency physicians and family practice physicians with advanced practice clinicians (APCs) including physician assistants and nurse practitioners.  We provide expert emergency care across a wide range of hospital locations and we do it efficiently and effectively. Our providers currently staff hospital emergency departments across the Twin Cities, St. Cloud and rural Minnesota. We also own and operate our three east-metro Urgency Room   locations.

Hospital Partners

EPPA physicians and APCs staff the ERs of Allina Heath Buffalo, Cambridge, Mercy and Unity Hospitals, CentraCare St. Cloud Hospital, Fairview Southdale and Ridgedale Hospitals and HealthPartners Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital. Our hospitals are Level II, III or IV trauma centers with primary heart and stroke programs certified by the Joint Commission. We work with our hospitals to maintain strong academic relationships with emergency medicine residency programs at Hennepin County Medical Center and Regions Hospital, both Level I trauma centers.

The Urgency Room

In 2010, EPPA became the first organization in the Midwest to bring out-of-hospital emergency care to communities in need with The Urgency Room (UR). Owned and operated by its physicians, the UR brings patients the emergency medical care they need without the long wait and hassle associated with many hospital ERs. With locations in Eagan, Vadnais Heights and Woodbury, The Urgency Room strives to be the destination of choice for patients in need of emergency care.
