Emergency Room Wait Times: What do these numbers represent?

ER wait time information represents the average amount of time passed from patient registration to being seen by a provider, over the last two hours. These numbers automatically update every 10 minutes. Many circumstances affect the amount of time you may wait in the ER. Patients with critical medical issues, or those arriving by ambulance, may be seen ahead of those in less serious condition.

The ER wait times are posted on the website for informational purposes only. These figures are not a guarantee, but represent average wait times based on recent activity.

If you have a life-threatening emergency, please dial 911.
