ER Wait Times in Stark County Hospitals

Average wait times at hospital in Stark 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.

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.

: "Hinsdale Hospital - November 9, 2023. Wife arrives at 3 pm called from wait room at 7:10 pm. At 6:30 pm, they inform her they have a few critical cases and cannot estimate how much longer. People have left that arrived during this time. I (her husband) came back at 7 pm and witnessed three ambulances (private service) arrive at the same time.

Busiest we’ve ever seen inside Hinsdale ER.

Learned Elmhurst publishes their wait time. Was 31 minutes at 6:30 and dropped to 25 minutes at 7:15 pm.

Never again at Hinsdale Hospital unless I dont have a choice because of the ambulance driver!"

: "Waited at the Vanderbilt ER after being laced with Cocaine and was never seen. I was freaking out because obviously I’ve never done Coke and the side effects were scary and unexpected. I was genuinely panicking in the waiting room and almost passed out from hyperventilating. I ended up waiting so long that I made it through the whole high, eventually calmed down on my own, and drove myself home. Apparently a coke high doesn’t last that long (thank God) but is really scary and intense…especially when you aren’t expecting it. Emotionally scarred forever." - DW

They drew blood and performed a chest x-ray in-between. They told me nothing, and shamed me when I complained. " - Shannon
