Emily Hurst, DO, FACOI, began practicing in 2008 and since then has served as a hospitalist, intensivist, internal medicine program director and medical director. Providing care in both small communities and large academic centers gave her a wide variety of experience prior to joining the team in 2014.
Emily views teamwork as a key to achieving her goal of helping to expand and grow the program while improving patient satisfaction and care. “Working together achieves synergism as a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts,” she says.
