What it does: Emergent is a physicians group offering comprehensive emergency care and care-management services/staffing for medical groups and hospitals in Southern California. It currently serves more than 20 facilities.

How it grew to become one of healthcare's hottest: “We've always tried to be the group that physicians want to be a part of and the group hospitals want to partner with,” says CEO James Edwards.

The company uses a proprietary data-driven system to set higher standards for all operating aspects of medical facilities that EMA is staffing. Edwards says Emergent makes a point to emphasize an integrated “ecosystem” approach to operations at each facility the firm staffs, looking beyond just the ER.

This is the second year EMA is one of Healthcare's Hottest.
