ED Wait Time

Did you know when you come to the SMC Emergency Department, you’re being treated by Cooper Emergency Medicine Physicians? Cooper doctors know that in a medical emergency, every minute matters. Working with our team of nurses, technologists, and support staff, our physicians are committed to a 30-minutes-or-less ED Service Pledge, while providing the quality care and service you deserve.

The ED average wait time is approximate and provided as an informational service to the public. It is based on a rolling average that is updated four times an hour and does not represent the actual current activity in the ED waiting room. It represents the time it takes from arrival until a patient is initially seen by a clinical professional — physician, physician assistant, or advanced practice nurse. Patients are triaged upon their arrival in the ED. They are then seen by a clinical professional in an order based on the complaint, condition, and reason for the visit.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
