ER wait times, which are defined as the time it takes from check in at the ER desk until a patient is initially seen by a clinical professional (a physician, physician assistant or nurse practitioner), can change quickly. These times are dependent on the severity of the illnesses and other patients also in the ER.
The ER wait time is provided as an informational service to the public. It is approximate, and based on a rolling 90 minute average that is updated every 15 minutes.
If you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
Patients are triaged upon their arrival in the ER. They are then seen by a clinical professional in an order based on their complaint, condition, and the reason for their visit. We take our commitment seriously, but in the event of a trauma or life threatening illness in the ER, wait time may be longer.
Should you have any additional questions about our QuickER campaign, please ask any of our ER staff.
