The Emergency Department (ED/ER) average wait time is provided as an informational service to the public. It is approximate, and based on a rolling average that is updated four times an hour and does not represent the actual current activity in the ER waiting room.
The ER wait time represents the time it takes from arrival until a patient is initially seen by a Clinical Professional (Physician, Physician Assistant or Advanced Practice Nurse). Patients are triaged upon their arrival in the ED. They are then seen by a Clinical Professional in an order based on their complaint, condition, and the reason for their visit.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 and seek immediate medical attention.
