DMC ER Wait Times - "Know Before You Go"
Category: DMC News


This week on the DMC Blog, we are featuring a special behind-the-scenes look at how the DMC launched and currently maintaines its 29 Minute ER Guarantee in the video "29-Minute ER Guarantee: How We Do It" hosted by our own Emery King. Click on the video below to view or click here to watch on our ER Wait Times page on DMC.org.


And did you need to know the current wait time at a DMC ER? There's an app for that! Visit iTunes to download the free DMC ER App to your iPhone or iTouch, and you'll always know before you go. The app also provides key phone numbers, and mapping to any DMC ER from any location, using a special GPS-like program. Click here to check out and download the app.

Or, if texting is more your style, simply text "ER" to 42660, and receive a quick reply listing ER wait times at  Children's Hospital of Michigan,  Detroit Receiving,  Huron Valley-Sinai,  Sinai-Grace, and DMC Surgery Hospital.


This new app is the latest element in DMC's ongoing initiative to provide current ER wait times, so you know up front what to expect.  DMC is the only hospital system in Michigan that will tell you how long you'll have to wait in the emergency room, before you arrive. The wait times for each hospital can also be found at dmc.org. And now they are even more mobile on your iPhone or iTouch, using the DMC ER App.
