Our History

Beginnings: Sandhills Emergency Physicians started as a 5-member physician group in 1991. It provided coverage to Moore Regional Hospital, a well-recognized specialty hospital.

Current: The group has expanded to 32 full- and part-time physicians and 9 Advanced Practice Providers.  SEP provides coverage at 4 separate facilities each with a unique patient population:

MRH-Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst
