While most walk-in patients see one of our medical experts in less than 30 minutes, there's much more to the quality of an ED than the time you have to wait. With nearly 70,000 visits each year, our team of doctors and nurses has the experience to deal with any emergency.
Why don't we post ED wait times online? Because no matter what hospital you visit, online wait times are rarely accurate and are usually just a marketing gimmick. No matter how many people are waiting in front of you, the severity of your symptoms will determine how quickly you are seen. What we can promise you is that our doctors and nurses will quickly assess your symptoms and treat you as efficiently as possible. Even though time is of the essence, we pride ourselves in being able to connect with each patient to fully understand his or her needs so we can provide the most appropriate treatment. It's what we've been doing for more than 50 years and why Shawnee Mission Medical Center is Johnson County's most trusted emergency department.
