LAS VEGAS—The value of emergency medicine is pretty simple to Andrew Sama, MD, FACEP, chief executive officer of Progressive Emergency Physicians of Uniondale, New York.
It’s people. To be more specific, it’s you.
“I want to thank all of you for what you do every day,” the ACEP Past President said at the Colin C. Rorrie Jr. Lecture on health policy. “The advanced-practice providers and nurses, the staff, EMS providers. You guys are really creating the value of emergency medicine….it’s what allows the College and its leaders to take our message to Washington and elsewhere.”
