The Emergency Department is committed to providing you with prompt, high quality care.  We are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a  year.  Every effort is made to see patients as quickly as possible.  Patients are not seen in order of arrival; it depends on how urgent or severe each case is.  Urgent cases must always be given priority, so please be patient as you wait. If your symptoms change while waiting to see a doctor, please let the nurse know immediately. Please note that both registration and the waiting area are central, so patients awaiting other services are also in this area.
