About Us

We Know Emergency Medicine

We understand that staffing emergency departments can be a challenge. We know that the ebbs and flows of patient visits can put pressure on staffing directors who need to maintain quality care delivery while filling scheduling gaps.

That’s why a group of seasoned healthcare executives and emergency physicians with decades of experience established NEED Physicians LLC. Headquartered in Boston, NEED specializes in placing top-tier emergency physicians at hospitals across New England to cover patient surges and open shifts.

The Match Makes All The Difference

It is imperative to make the right physician-hospital match from the start. Our extensive Discovery Process documents all aspects of emergency medicine, including: culture, case mix, patient volume, workflows and technologies. 

We recruit the best and brightest emergency specialists from leading medical schools and residency programs, as well as physicians with experience at top-tier hospitals and academic medical centers. Our unique approach enables hospitals to utilize physicians they might not ordinarily be able to access.

Our team matches emergency physicians with the skills, credentials, certifications and experience to help hospitals achieve their goals. 


NEED provides hospitals and healthcare centers with top quality physicians on an intermittent basis to ensure continuity of care and revenue preservation .
