No one likes to wait, especially if they are sick or injured.
Making our wait times for our Emergency Center available to the
community is part of our effort to provide exceptional care and
exceed our patients' expectations.
Our average wait time to see a doctor is less than 30 minutes
compared to other hospitals' average of 60 minutes.
You can also text "Time" to 95495 to receive our current wait
time right to your cell phone. In addition, the wait time
is automatically updated to the digital billboard at the
corner of Cable and Elida roads in Lima.
About Our Wait Times
Our ER Wait time is approximate and provided for informational
purposes only, and is not a guarantee. You should always dial
911 in a life-threatening emergency.
The ER wait time represents the time it takes patients to see an
emergency medicine practitioner after arrival. Patients will be
assessed by a certified emergency medicine nurse before seeing the
medical practitioner. Wait times are updated every 30
ER wait times can change quickly depending on the urgency of
patients that arrive by ambulance. Lima Memorial provides care
to patients with life threatening illnesses first.
Lima Memorial's Emergency Center is a Level II Trauma Center
and Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI.
