St. Luke’s Hospital Launches New 30 Minute ER

The wait is officially over at St. Luke’s. The hospital just launched a 30 Minute ER campaign designed to reduce long waits in the Emergency Room. The goal is for each patient to be seen by a physician or physician’s assistant within 30 minutes of their arrival to the St. Luke’s ER.

“We understand the last thing people want to do is sit in a waiting room when they are not feeling well,” said Donnie Romine, President of St. Luke’s Hospital. “We have allocated resources to better ensure patients are seen in a more, timely manner.”

Our commitment to increased efficiency includes adding staff, many who are on-call, waiting to respond should wait times start to increase, beginning triage as quickly as possible to evaluate patients and prioritize the severity of conditions and ordering tests and treatment as soon as possible.

“St. Luke’s Hospital has a long history of delivering quality care to patients. We have invested in resources that allow us to deliver that quality care quicker today,” said Dr. Katherine Considine, Medical Director of St. Luke’s Emergency Department.
