What does the wait time tell me?

This number reflects how long people currently spend in the adult emergency room waiting room before seeing a physician. It is the average of patients’ wait times over the past two hours.

What affects wait times?

There are many factors that affect wait times. This may include patients arriving by ambulance or those with life-threatening injuries or illnesses.

Like all emergency departments, we see patients with severe conditions first.

Please call 911 if you are having a medical emergency.

Note: We provide our wait times for informational purposes. We cannot guarantee these times will be the same once you arrive.
