*The emergency room wait times represent the average time it takes from check-in until a patient sees a qualified medical practitioner (physician, advanced practice nurse or physician assistant).  We prioritize patients according to severity of injuries, and the number of patients may affect actual wait times.  Our wait times are continuously averaged using the last 1 hour of wait-times and are updated every 4 minutes.

ER or ExpressCare?

The decision of whether to head to a neighborhood express care center or an Emergency Room relies in part on what is required to care for your problem.

Express Care Wait Times IconExpress Care

A visit to a MetroExpressCare has the advantage of being convenient – there are many throughout the community. With Radiology services on-site, it’s a great alternative for sprains and strains, as well as moderate flu-like symptoms and minor cuts that require stitches.  Also, there is usually a lower charge than at an Emergency Room.

Emergency Room Cross IconEmergency Care

There are many illnesses and injuries that require rapid treatment by an advanced Emergency medicine team.  Chest pains, sudden slurred speech and severe head injuries are just a few reasons to come to the ER immediately.  An emergency department has the advantage of having more robust services and equipment, additional medical staff for consultations and more diagnostic capabilities.
