Patient-Focused Emergency Care

Every patient who comes to our emergency department receives prompt, skillful, personalized care. Our team assesses and quickly responds to the most critical needs with state-of-the-art treatments.

Our procedures are designed to provide the quickest possible “Door-to-Doctor”  times for you and your family. For your convenience, we also post our ER Wait Times on our website and on our FREE mobile app.  However, patients with critical needs are always treated immediately and ER wait times are determined by the urgency of your condition.

Between 11 a.m. and 9 p.m., we also have a Rapid Medical Evaluation service staffed by a Physician Assistant to help mildly ill patients move through the ER within 30 minutes.
