Innova Makes a Meaningful Difference in the Communities We Serve

Making a Difference

Innova was founded in 2010 to provide the best emergency care possible by physicians committed to bringing cutting-edge medicine to rural facilities. We know that small hospitals face challenges attracting physicians and administrators to effectively staff their emergency departments. Innova’s founder saw the need for a collaborative physicians group that could recruit and retain the top talent to these underserved communities.

Innova’s physicians and executives form lasting relationships with the hospitals, emergency departments, and community leaders we partner with. Our work isn’t merely transactional—we build professional families to help tackle the job on a collaborative level.

Servant-Leaders

Innova’s administration can best be described as servant-leaders, focusing primarily on the growth and well-being of our team, our hospital partners, and the communities and patients we serve. Our executive leaders and cadre of medical directors come from the best programs around the country and bring their administrative and clinical expertise to bear in your emergency department. We lead from the top down, so it’s not unusual to see our CEO and CMO working shifts at our sites. We always have a pulse on what’s happening in your ED.

We work together to make sure that hospital committees and the hospital board have appropriate representation and attendance from Innova. Should you desire, you’ll have an available, accountable, community-minded Medical Director to collaborate with at all times. We bring fresh ideas and best-in-class practices to your emergency department and the surrounding communities.
