John Horning, MD, FAAEM

Dr. John is a board certified emergency medicine physician and has practiced hospital emergency medicine since 1996. He attended Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and thereafter completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Columbia University Affiliate – Morristown Medical Center 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 acted as EMS Paramedic Director for St Peters Health in Helena, Montana. He also served as Treasurer for the New Hampshire State Chapter of the American College of Emergency 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 in hospital ER’s in Manchester, New Hampshire, Bellingham, Washington, Truckee, California, Sonora, California, and Helena, Montana. He relinquished his regular position in the emergency department 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 observed that patients were appreciative of the convenient and professional service that was offered by he and his colleagues providing urgent care focused hotel & house calls. From this experience he determined to establish a hotel and house call service for the San Francisco Bay Area. 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. He launched Urgent Med Housecalls in 2007.  More recently, since 2014, Dr. Horning practiced emergency medicine in Helena, Montana, in addition to running Urgent Med Housecalls.  He returned to full time house call practice with Urgent Med Housecalls in 2018, and is now offering daily house call and hotel doctor services throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
