It's About Time
In a medical emergency, every minute matters. TriStar Health understands that the sooner a patient is seen by a medical provider, the faster appropriate treatment can begin, leading to higher patient satisfaction and better outcomes. TriStar hospitals continue to place a high priority on process improvements to streamline admissions, evaluation and treatment in our emergency departments. The result is a dramatic reduction in the average wait times at TriStar emergency departments and overall patient satisfaction.
The average wait time at each of our emergency departments is based on a 4-hour rolling average from the time a patient comes in the door at the emergency room until they see a physician or other qualified medical provider.
