Emergency Care Services
Over 27,000 medical emergencies were treated last year at South Bay Hospital’s emergency room. We provide emergency care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We are equipped to treat a variety of medical emergencies in our ERs, including general, vascular and orthopedic emergency care.
We strive to provide the highest quality care possible in our ER. We have been recognized by the Joint Commission, Society for Cardiovascular Patient Care and the American Heart Association for our excellence in providing care.
Emergency Room Wait Times
Our emergency room physicians, nurses and paramedics follow demonstrated best practices to ensure patients receive the best care possible, as fast as possible. The wait times at our emergency room are consistently lower than the national average. Last year our patients were seen in 18 minutes or less on average.
Because of our success in providing urgent care, we now post our emergency room wait times on our website. You can also text ER to 23000 for our current average wait time. Message and data rates may apply. For more information, visit texterhelp.com.
