About Us

Emerus, the nation’s first and largest operator of micro-hospitals, has incorporated a new paradigm into patient care that has significantly improved access to health care for thousands of people, many of whom live in underserved areas where high-quality patient-centric acute episodic and ambulatory clinical services are needed most.

Focusing on excellence, empathy and innovation, Emerus hospitals are organized around the patient and family. This concept allows Emerus and its partners to work with patients while they are healthy to keep them healthy, providing a level of compassionate care and support typically not found at larger hospitals, free-standing emergency rooms or urgent care centers.

Emerus works with leading health systems across the nation, including the Allegheny Health Network, Ascension Health, Baptist Health, Baylor Scott & White Health, Dignity Health, The Hospitals of Providence, INTEGRIS Health, Mon Health and MultiCare, to put more care and best-in-class provider services into the communities they serve.
