Urgent Med Housecalls was established by Dr. John Horning in 2007. He has practiced hospital emergency medicine since 1996. He attended Northwestern University School of Medicine and thereafter completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Columbia University Affiliate – Morristown Memorial Hospital in New Jersey. During his final year he was honored to serve as Chief Resident of Emergency Medicine.
He served as Emergency Medical Services Director for the Southern Region of New Hampshire, and also served as Treasurer for the New Hampshire State Chapter of the American College of Emergency Physicians, He is an active member of the American Academy of Home Care Physicians. He is a Fellow and Founding Member of the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and has been a Diplomate of the American Board of Emergency Medicine since 1997.
Dr. Horning has practiced emergency medicine in hospital ER’s in Manchester, New Hampshire, Bellingham, Washington, Truckee, California, Sonora, California, and he is currently on staff at St. Peter’s Hospital ER in Helena, Montana.
He relinquished his regular position in the emergency room at St. Joseph Hospital in Bellingham, Washington in 2005 to relocate with his wife and two daughters to Prague, Czech Republic for a year away. During that time he commuted to Vail and Aspen, Colorado where he provided urgent house call medical services to the resorts, hotels and local residences. He discovered that house call medicine provided the opportunity to connect with patients that he had rarely experienced in the emergency department because of time constraints. He noted that patients were appreciative of the convenient and professional service that was offered by he and his colleagues providing urgent care house calls. From this experience he determined to establish a hotel and house call service for the San Francisco Bay Area offered by emergency physicians. After a year in Prague he and his wife and two daughters returned to the United States to San Francisco to live close to family, enjoy all that the city has to offer, and launch Urgent Med Housecalls.
