Emergencies
In an emergency dial 911
Madigan’s Emergency Room (ER) is available for medical and traumatic emergencies at all times. The ER is accessible through an entrance on Gardner Loop. Specially trained nurses evaluate each patient on arrival to determine those who require the most urgent attention. The degree of urgency, not arrival time, establishes who will be seen first.
Waiting times range from less than 30 minutes to five hours or more, and typically increase throughout the day. Evaluation takes 15 to 30 minutes; or up to several hours if laboratory tests, X-rays or other special studies are required. Weekends and holidays are especially busy because most other hospital services and outlying clinics are closed.
