About ER Wait Times
- ER wait times are approximate and provided for informational purposes only. If you’re having a medical emergency, call 911.
- The ER wait times represent the time it takes to see a qualified medical professional, defined as a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.), Physician Assistant (P.A.) or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (A.R.N.P.) to initiate your care.
- ER wait times represent a four-hour rolling average updated every 30 minutes. Patients are triaged at arrival and then seen by a qualified medical professional based on priority of medical need.
- The national average wait time is one hour, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. LewisGale hospitals consistently beat the national average.
