ER Wait Times
HCA Gulf Coast Division is committed to treating emergency room patients in a fair and timely manner. So we back that up by posting all of our ER wait times online, viewable from any computer or mobile phone.
Here’s how it works:
- A patient walks into an ER and is received at our registration. That time is recorded in our system.
- A patient is then evaluated or treated by a qualified medical professional: doctor, nurse, physician assistant, etc.
- The difference in time is recorded as the official wait time for that patient.
- Wait times are then averaged over a four-hour period and updated online every 30 minutes.
