NACS - Physician Ownership

Engaged Providers

At NACS, our dedication to sustainability, the success of our diverse team, and the well-being of our community is rooted in our commitment to physician ownership. With purpose, integrity, and investment in professional growth, we aim for excellence in patient care and continuous improvement in outcomes.

Our leadership, comprising our CEO, board directors, medical directors, and system directors, consists entirely of practicing emergency physicians. Every significant decision is made through a democratic process, ensuring that our values and goals are aligned with the collective expertise and perspectives of our engaged providers.

Continuous Learning

NACS fosters a culture of continuous, collaborative learning that advances best practices and evidence-based care. Our immersive “Resuscitation and Team Simulations (RaTS)” and Critical Airways Skills Seminars are just part of our commitment to ongoing education and skill development.

We provide these classes not only to our providers but also to our nursing and technician partners in the Emergency Department. We have also created tailored quarterly training courses to meet the specific needs of our APPs.

We complement all this with extensive and proprietary online libraries featuring instructional videos and Continuing Medical Education (CME) resources.
