How our Wait Times are Calculated

ER wait times, as displayed on this website, are an average and provided for informational purposes only. If you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.

The ER wait time as shown is calculated using a 4 hour rolling average which is updated every 15 minutes. Each time used to calculate the average is defined as the time of patient registration at the ER until the time a patient is greeted by a qualified medical professional. A qualified medical professional is defined as a Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), Physician Assistant (PA) or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). 

Patients are triaged at arrival and are then seen by a qualified medical professional in the priority order based on their presenting complaint and reason for visit.
