Emergency Department Wait Time
Our wait times are defined as the length of time between when a visitor registers at the emergency department to the time where they see a qualified medical professional.
- We take the wait time for all patients who came to our emergency department in the past hour.
- That average wait time is then posted to the website every 60 minutes.
- Because the Emergency Department’s triage system prioritizes by medical urgency, actual wait times vary. Patients with the most urgent needs may be seen sooner than the displayed time.
