Sacred Heart Medical Center
Emergency Department Wait Times

If you are experiencing chest pains or difficulty breathing, please call 911. Depending on your symptoms at your time of arrival, you may be seen immediately.

The wait times displayed are the average times and cannot be guaranteed at the time of your arrival. Shortly after your arrival, you will be evaluated by a triage nurse.  If it is determined you have a condition that requires immediate attention, you will be placed in a room and evaluated by a physician. Blood work and imaging tests may be ordered for you prior to seeing a physician. If you have a condition that does not warrant immediate attention, you will be seen as soon as possible and the displayed wait times will apply in most cases. These times are based on our automated patient tracking system and measure the time between a patient receiving a tracking badge in our Emergency Department lobby and being placed in an Emergency Department bed.
