How we are reducing wait times:

Our Emergency Department has two simple goals for every patient who comes to us:
  • To see each patient within 30 minutes of arrival.
  • To complete an evaluation and provide next steps within the next 30 minutes.

Much of the time, we are able to give our patients this expedited care. But since the ED at Strong receives the area’s most complex and life-threatening cases, there are times when your wait may be longer. We appreciate your patience at these times.

Every patient is important to us, so we continuously work toward providing the most advanced, compassionate care in the shortest possible time.
