Delivering measurable improvements to hospitals nationwide
Offering “The VEP Effect” to your hospital
VEP Healthcare began providing emergency medical management services in 1981. In the years since, our expertise has expanded into hospitalist services, intensive care, clinical decision units, and telehealth. Today, the owners of VEP – our physicians, advanced practice clinicians, and corporate personnel – deliver clinical staffing and management services to major urban, smaller community, and rural hospitals nationwide. Our partner hospitals call our positive impact on quality, efficiency, and patient satisfaction “The VEP Effect.”
VEP is actually looking to have a solid relationship where everyone is partnering, growing together, and taking care of patients.
