ED wait times now online

Published Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Wait times at your local hospital’s Emergency Department can now be checked online.

Starting today, Emergency Department wait times will be posted here. You can also access the information by clicking on the ED wait times icon located on the right hand side of pages across this website.

The move is designed to provide Winnipeggers with an idea of what they can expect if the need to visit an Emergency Department.

The web page also provides a link to, a web page describing primary care options other than Emergency Departments.

Prior to posting Emergency Department wait times publicly on the internet, wait time information was available on electronic screens in each of Winnipeg’s Emergency Department waiting rooms.

The webpage draws on up-to-date information from the Emergency Department Information System to provide details on the number of patients in the waiting room, average time patients have been waiting to get into a treatment space, and the longest time a non-urgent patient currently in the waiting room has been waiting.

The ED wait times page and are part of a larger initiative to improve patient flow, and increase transparency and availability of information throughout the health-care system which together will enhance the patient experience, ensure efficient use of resources, and help reduce wait times.
