Emergency Wait Times

Saint Clare's ambulanceEmergencies can’t wait. And neither does our emergency team.

Keep reading to learn more about emergency health care at Saint Clare’s, and our commitment to delivering smarter, faster, and better care than ever before.

Trusted, Comprehensive Pre-hospital and ER Care

Saint Clare’s provides emergency services to thousands of patients a year in the ER’s at our Denville and Dover Hospitals. With one of the newest ambulance fleets in the region and some of the most qualified personnel in their respective specialties, we provide emergency or general medical transport to skilled nursing facilities, doctors’ appointments and personal residences. Our Specialty Care Transport Units provide care for critically-ill patients ranging from newborns to those of advanced age with multiple medical problems. In an acute situation, care begins in the ambulance while the emergency department prepares for arrival – meaning your care starts even before you enter the hospital’s doors.

Dedicated Experts Ready to Handle Virtually Any Emergency

Each emergency department is staffed by board-certified emergency physicians, supported by physician assistants and specially trained and certified nurses, and is equipped with the latest in medical technology, including CT scans, MRI scans and ultrasounds. We also have comprehensive programs in place for stroke,emergency angioplasty, and therapeutic hypothermia treatment. At the same time, we’ve reengineered our protocols, processes, and staffing so that our expert care begins in minutes. Saint Clare's utilizes a "green zone" system that moves patients, with minor symptoms and injuries, through the emergency department quickly. Our processes and systems result in faster turn-around times for lab work, diagnostic tests and pharmaceutical needs – ultimately resulting in more efficient patient treatment.

Care That’s Not Just Faster, But Better

At Saint Clare’s, we didn’t just make our emergency departments faster…we made them better. A visit to the ER should not mean overcrowding, long wait times, and lack of information. We are striving to provide better emergency care services that are smarter and faster – and to keep you informed of what to expect.
