ER Wait Times in Wharton County HospitalsAverage wait times at hospital in Wharton County show the time patients can expect to spend. Actual wait times will depend on many factors, such as severity of the injury, time of day, and staffing. Patients are quickly evaluated as part of a triage process, so the most severe cases can be treated first. Depending on the hospital, this initial wait can run from a few minutes to over an hour. The times below also include wait times for initial treatment, since there can be many delays after the triage process. Choose an ER with a shorter wait time to get seen more quickly.
Total Wait Times
|Gulf Coast Medical Center||Wharton||2h 46m|
|El Campo Memorial Hospital||El Campo||2h 50m|
Add an Urgent Care Center to the list
These are the average time from entering the ER to being admitted to the hospital by a doctor. In a busy ER, patients will be seen by a triage nurse first. Then the wait time will vary by severity, and how busy the ER is at the time of day. Patients with less serious problems could have substantially longer waits.
There is a 4 minute wait difference between the fastest ER in Wharton and the slowest.

Lake Granbury Medical Center: "I have had 6 surgeries at Lake Granbury in the last 3 years--not by choice--it was the only hospital my surgeon worked at. Although there were some very nice people on the staff, there were certainly some rotten apples. But much worse were the mistakes and poor medical practice EVERY time: running out of the right IV med, having wrong info in their computer system, ordering the wrong blood supply--repeatedly!, having no equipment needed for when I was unable to stand (and subsequently dropping me on the floor, and injuring me)......etc., etc. but the last was the worst--I definitely acquired MRSA during surgery.....and they're claiming zero cases? Liars! 6 months later I am still being treated for it, and will most likely have to manage it for the rest of my life--and I truly doubt I'm the only one that picked it up there--that's not how it generally works. And I came out of surgery with serious bruising in places that had nothing to do with the surgery--they know my genetic condition requires gentle handling, but it was obvious I had been very roughly handled while unconscious.....I'm done! I would rather change surgeons than EVER use that hospital again! And every time I've tried to use their ER (and it takes a lot for me to even consider it) they scratch their heads and shrug their shoulders, and act like there's nothing to find......and I end up driving to Harris where they recognize the problem-whatever it happens to be and successfully treat me--while being professional, competent, and kind. Harris Ft. Worth is definitely worth the drive! But I wouldn't want anyone I cared about to be in Lake Granbury" - P.

Conroe Regional Medical Center: "conroe medical center. -Conroe Texas. I have been here twice with my mom and second with my dad. Both times the same issues, communication among doctors is terrible. They repeatedly come to pick you up for tests and have to be reminded that we just had that test. Have to repeat to each person who walks in what we are here for. No one documents anything. If you ask a nurse what is happening you will get information that is not clear. Check out takes forever. We have been cleared by attending doctor but have to wait on a call from admitting doctor, Who has never seen us, before we can go. Will drive 50 miles out of the way to go somewhere else next time.

Scott & White Memorial Hospital: ""Baylor" Scott and White isn't what it use to be. Before "Baylor" was adopted into the name, I felt like an actual patient. Now, they make me feel more like a criminal. I once witnessed a doctor named Dr. Tyler McFadden in the ER call my husband a "junkie" simply bc...idk...he didn't understand what was wrong with my husband? Idk but NO professional should EVER call a patient a name like that. It was hurtful to him and I felt offended myself. Calls to HR weren't taken seriously. And don't get my started on wait times!!! This place took on more than it could handle, and it shows. Nurses are mostly Angels. But the doctors know EVERYTHING! And, it's incredible how so many smart professionals take so long to act in a timely manner. Guess they use WedMD as much as I do! Go to Seaton if possible! This place is a huge disappointment.

Emerus Hospital: "Terrible. I have been to the ER in Murphy Texas twice and received sub-par care (actually negligent on the first occassion) and suspicious billing practices. When I called to dispute some charges (with reason) I was told, basically, that there is no way to dispute because they billed what they billed and you can't argue. I am currently researching how to make a formal complaint." - Amy

Parkland Health And Hospital System: "I came in today with my pregnant daughter at about 3pm and we are still waiting in the women emergency section.\r\nShe has back pain and cramps due to car accident. Why do they take so long to be seen here at Parkland Hospital.\r\nP.S. other patients here have been here since 8am.\r\nThis is not right." - Aide

St Luke's Hospital At The Vintage: "St. lukes at the vintage is a hospital of last resort. Don't go there unless you have a death wish. My best friend and his wife both died within 3 weeks of each other under suspicious circumstances. The people are not to competent. I'm not a Doctor but I don't think you give muscle relaxers to someone with congestive heart failure. It's a very pretty hospital but looks don't keep patients alive. " - Ralph

Good Shepherd Medical Center: "Good Shepherd Medicine Clinic was my primary care facility. Long waiting times, lackadaisical attitude, don't answer their phone or check their messages. Wrote the wrong prescription and took a week for anyone to even call back, after I had started calling main office. Corrected wrong prescription with another wrong prescription. I cried at the Kroger. " - Valerie
