Wait Times

If you have a life-threatening condition, call 911 immediately for treatment and transport to the nearest hospital.

While no wait time can be guaranteed, you have the comfort of knowing you’ll be treated by our expert Emergency Department physicians whether at one of our four Urgent Care centers or at our hospitals. Our board-certified, ER physicians and specialized staff are available to you when you need us – seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

About Urgent Care wait times

Most patients to our four Urgent Care centers are treated and released in about an hour for minor illnesses and injuries. Our Urgent Care centers are also equipped with state-of-the-art equipment as well as x-ray for visits requiring additional attention, but not requiring Emergency Room care. More complicated cases may require a longer visit, resulting in increased wait times.

ER wait times

About ER wait times

ER Wait Times represent the time it takes for a patient to be placed into a treatment room in the hospital Emergency Center.  Ninety percent of our ER patients are in a room within 25 minutes or less, which represents patients with minor injuries or illnesses.

Patients are evaluated upon arrival and are then seen by an emergency medicine clinician in priority order, based on the severity of their condition. We provide care to the most critical cases first.
