About Us

An Experienced and Engaged Clinical and Local Community Partner

Southeast Emergency Partners (SEP) is a regional emergency medicine group committed to the hospital partners and the communities in which they serve. Based on Florida’s west coast, SEP began as a partnership in 2017 and provides strong physician leadership and the advanced resources necessary to fuel a high-performing emergency department. SEP is fueled by the inventive and expert leadership of its President and founder, Dr. Roderick Bennett and co-founder, Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Onier Villarreal.​

Our SEP team is actively involved in our hospitals and our local communities. Our physician leaders serve as medical directors of their county sheriff’s office SWAT team, as regional EMS Medical Directors, and as founders of innovative companies that offer innovative efficiencies in healthcare delivery.

An Innovative Delivery of Care Starts with Innovative Physicians

Physician engagement is crucial to driving better processes, improving patient care, and improving the patient experience. Misaligned incentives can lead to poor clinical and fiscal performance. At Southeast Emergency Partners (SEP), our ownership model drives a culture of engagement that is led by physicians with an acute understanding of both emergency medicine and business strategy.​

We believe in equity ownership by our full-time eligible physicians and partners, which creates an excellent opportunity for alignment and continued long-term relationships with our health-system partners and colleagues. Physicians who are new to the practice are offered the opportunity to become a partner during a window that opens annually. Our unique model supports our mission of ensuring we remain a physician-led emergency medicine group. Our physicians understand that quality, safety, and exceptionally reliable performance, yields excellent operational results and patient outcomes. The model allows our clinicians to build their lives around their practice and remain local and involved in hospital and health system committees, as well as community-based activities.
