Who We Are

The New Brunswick Extra-Mural Program (EMP), often known as the “hospital without walls,” provides home health services to New Brunswickers of all ages in their homes and communities.

The care EMP provides helps New Brunswickers them stay in their homes when they may otherwise have required hospitalization, and helps them get home faster when they do require hospital-based care. The Program has been recognized internationally as an innovative way to support comprehensive health care needs.

The EMP’s services are funded by the Government of New Brunswick. The program and the work of its over 900 professionals around the province are managed by Medavie Health Services New Brunswick.
