    Wait times vary by condition. The wait time shown is updated every 15 minutes and represents an average time from patient arrival to being in an emergency department room. Additional time may be needed to be seen by a qualified medical professional.

    Wait times can change quickly depending on the urgency and number of patients.

    Please remember - you should always dial 911 in an emergency and allow medical personnel to evaluate the seriousness of your condition. When time is of the essence, be sure to get to the closest ER for quick evaluation and treatment.
