New Orleans-based Ochsner Medical Center is now posting online, real-time wait times for its four New Orleans area emergency rooms, thereby allowing patients the option to be treated more quickly at another Ochsner hospital for non-life-threatening conditions, it says.
According to the organization, Ochsner is offering this information to patients in an effort to improve healthcare for the community and meet patients’ growing requests for information about their care.
Ochsner Health System is a non-profit, academic health system that includes seven hospitals and more than over 35 health centers located throughout Southeast Louisiana. Ochsner employs more than 600 physicians in 80 medical specialties and subspecialties and more than 300 clinical research trials annually.
