Care and Treatment for Emergencies
Emergency Department Wait Times
Wait times reflect the time from check-in to care being initiated by
a physician. Estimated wait times are updated every ten minutes and
are based on the average wait of patients seen in the previous hour.
Patients are not brought back to the treatment area based on time of
arrival alone. Treatment is provided to the sickest patients first.
The Stanford Emergency department works to keep every patient's wait
time as short as possible while providing the highest quality medical
and psychiatric care.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, dial 9-1-1.
