* How are Emergency Room wait times calculated?

At Renown Health, we understand that your time is valuable, especially in emergency situations. That's why we strive to provide patients with the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding emergency room wait times.

Our estimated ER wait time feature allows patients and guests to plan ahead and make informed decisions about seeking medical care. It's important to note that while we make every effort to provide accurate wait time estimates, the actual wait time at our physical locations may vary or differ due to unexpected emergencies or other factors beyond our control.

Thank you for choosing Renown Health, where we strive to provide exceptional care with compassion and respect.
