About Our ER Wait Times
ER wait times are approximate and provided for informational purposes only. If you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
The ER wait time represents the time it takes to see a qualified medical professional, defined as a Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), Physician Assistant (PA) or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).
ER wait times represent a four-hour rolling average updated every 30 minutes, and is defined as the time of patient arrival until the time the patient is greeted by a qualified medical professional.Patients are triaged at arrival and are then seen by a qualified medical professional in priority order based on their presenting complaint and reason for visit.
Any non-digital posting of HCA average ER wait times reflects the previous month’s average ER wait times defined as the time of patient arrival until the time the patient is greeted by a qualified medical professional.
Note: On billboards with non-digital displays, the posted ER wait time value represents the average wait time for the previous month, calculated using the same data as the four-hour rolling average.
