* ED wait time represents a one-hour rolling average updated every 15 minutes and is defined as the time of patient arrival until the patient is escorted into the room where treatment begins. Patients are triaged at arrival and seen in priority order based on their presenting complaint(s) and reason for visit. Because new patients arrive frequently, this is not a guarantee and your personal experience may vary significantly from the posted times. This is provided for informational purposes only. Online check-in is not intended for life-threatening, debilitating or emergent conditions. Users are subject to the same triage processes as all Emergency Department visitors and treatment may be delayed to accommodate patients requiring more immediate treatment.
