*ED wait time represents a one-hour rolling average updated every 15 minutes and is defined as the time of patient arrival until the patient is escorted into the room where treatment begins.

Online check-in is not intended for life-threatening, debilitating or emergent conditions. Users are subject to the same triage processes as all Emergency Department visitors and treatment may be delayed to accommodate patients requiring more immediate treatment.
