ER Wait Times
Virtua offers five hospital-based and two satellite Emergency Departments. The wait times below represent the average estimated time it will take from registration to seeing a care practitioner.
Primary Care, Urgent Care or the Emergency Room?
Getting sick can be inconvenient, but your health care doesn’t have to be. It’s important to know where to go for high-quality, same-day care. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.
Call 9-1-1 immediately if this is a medical emergency.
Emergency Department Wait Times: What Do These Numbers Mean?
Wait times represent the average estimated length of time from registration upon arrival to seeing a licensed independent practitioner (doctor, nurse practitioner or physician assistant). Times displayed for Virtua Emergency Departments are:
- Reported as an average of wait times for the previous 2 hours of patients that have presented to the emergency department and have been seen by a provider
- Refreshed at least every 15 minutes
Many circumstances can affect wait times - for example, patients arriving by ambulance or with life-threatening injuries or illnesses. Patients with severe conditions will be seen before those with less-serious problems or ailments. These times are provided for informational purposes only and cannot be guaranteed upon arrival.
