ERMI, a part of UPMC, is a non-profit corporation. Unlike many other emergency medicine groups, none of the patient care revenue generated by ERMI’s physicians are diverted to corporate shareholders or contract holders. As a non-profit entity, we can focus on patient care and physician satisfaction.
The Urgent Care is open from 9a – 9p, 7 days per week. There is no call and no over-night shifts.
Flexible Work Options: ERMI offers numerous employment options to suit the needs of today’s physician. This flexibility allows our physicians to choose a balance of compensation and work that best fits their goals.
- Full-time physicians receive a comprehensive benefit package. The full-time package is available to physicians who work a minimum annual commitment of 1,600 clinical hours, approximately 133 hours per month.
- Permanent part-time physicians receive a partial benefit package. The permanent part-time package is available to physicians who work a minimum annual commitment of 1,040 hours, approximately 86 hours per month. This program has been popular among physicians who want a lower clinical workload, but still need high quality malpractice insurance and health insurance.
- Casual or “moonlighter” physicians receive an hourly rate and paid occurrence based malpractice insurance. These physicians have no annual or monthly commitment.
- Sites ERMI’s model is to employ physicians at one Urgent Care, which is identified in the physician's employment agreement. Physicians will not be required to work at any site that is not agreed upon by the physician. ERMI does offer split contracts between two sites as well as “internal moonlighting” options for physicians who want to supplement their compensation with additional clinical time.
