ER Wait Time
ER wait times are approximate and provided for informational purposes only. If you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
The ER wait time represents the time it takes to see a qualified medical professional, defined as a Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), Physician Assistant (PA) or Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).
ER wait times represent a four-hour rolling average updated every 30 minutes, and is defined as the time of patient arrival until the time the patient is greeted by a qualified medical professional. Patients are triaged at arrival and are then seen by a qualified medical professional in priority order based on their presenting complaint and reason for visit.
National average wait time is one hour, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). HCA hospitals strive to beat the national average.

One of the main goals of HCA hospitals throughout South Florida and the Treasure Coast is to reduce the time patients wait to see an Emergency Department physician. We have accomplished this by initiating processes and best demonstrated practices to ensure patients are cared for efficiently and effectively. In fact we have been so successful that all of our hospitals now post wait times on their websites.
