What We Do

We deliver primary health care services to New Brunswickers of all ages in their homes and communities.

The inter-disciplinary EMP team delivers acute, palliative, chronic, rehabilitative and supportive care services across New Brunswick, and provides patients with access to additional services including medical, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, respiratory therapy, social work, clinical dietetics, speech language pathology, pharmacy, as well as nursing care available on a 24/7 basis. 

EMP operates on a client and family centred model, meaning we  focus on building and maintaining partnerships with you and your families, physicians, agencies, departments and other service providers to best meet your needs.


People living within New Brunswick with a valid Medicare card (or in the process of receiving one) are eligible to receive Extra-Mural services, as long as health care needs can be met safely in the home.

Accessing EMP Services

Physicians with admitting privileges in Horizon and Vitalité Health Networks can refer to the EMP and professionals in the EMP can refer directly to their colleagues in other disciplines for clinical assessments. A physician may be required to sign orders for certain interventions.

EMP services can be accessed for assessment directly by patients and their families, or someone acting on the patient’s behalf with their consent.

For patients who require admission to the Extra-Mural Program who do not have a primary care provider, EMP service providers – with the patient’s consent – will facilitate access to a primary care provider to act as the attending physician or nurse practitioner for the EMP admission.
