ER Wait Times in Wharton County Hospitals

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.

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.

Baptist Medical Center: "I was there from 9 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. left without being seen. Went in with severe chest pains and left with severe chest pains I wouldn't recommend anyone going to this hospital in San Antonio. They won't see you till you actually code blue. Probably still won't try to revive you even then. Worst hospital ever and staff are just rude. " - phylicia

Laredo Medical Center: "I've never seen a hospital ER that makes people wait for over 12 hours in my life. I've never been a patient there, but I have family that has been and I have seen people wait up to two days in the ER. I hope, for the sake of my family, that we never have to use this hospital. It would be quicker to go to one of those urgent care ERs that are popping up all over Laredo. " - Lee

: "Waited 11 hours to be seen @ Parkland, Dallas hospital. I am currently sitting in the ER room waiting for a doctor to show up. It'seems been 20 min in addition to the 11 hours in the waiting room. They have no sense of urgency here what so ever." - Brian

Seton Northwest Hospital: "Recently went to Seton Northwest Austin Texas for sever pain on / under left rib cage after a very serious fall. Huge bruises on my legs and back. I actually bounced hitting my head twice on the pavement. I was quickly x-rayed ... one front one side... never saw them. I was dismissed with a prescription that does absolutely nothing for the pain. I am still in pain and am not a pain pill shopper. Rare are the times I ever take anything stronger than 800 mg Ibuprofen. I have swelling in my lower region and aching pain throughout. The pain on my side on / under my ribs is slightly better unless I lift or cough. I feel like I was dismissed as a "complainer" and my pain not taken seriously. I had been in few months prior only because I was advised to get an injury checked out that I thought would be fine. This last visit has left me clueless as to where I can go to find out what is going on and get some kind of relief. \r\n Hurt and Disappointed" - Betty

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

: "the care here in a small town like Greenville, Texas, Makes Me Feel Like I'm Just Another Loser Patient, Being pushed out and in, or in and out of the door at every doctor I have seen in this town of Greenville, Texas, in the last three years, since getting back to Greenville, Texas, in the last three years, where I have lived in one other time now, and it makes me feel DEPRESSED And CRAZY..... I feel like a CRAZY person, after I have seen ANY of these doctors here in Greenville, Texas, and That IS Really DEPRESSING! my parents just call me CRAZY And A LOON, Ironically Enough, Because They Have To Drive me to doctors appointments, because I'm in my early 40's, and I don't drive a car, and I am unable to get to other doctors outside of Greenville, Texas that MIGHT be better?? THAT Really DEPRESSES Me, because I have put my health on Hold while My parents TAKE CARE OF THEIR NEEDS for months now, and I have just been pushed out of the way, And Now I AM Really SICK, and my parents are treating me like CRAP for being Really SICK now! DEPRESSING!" - Elise
