Emergency Room Triage Wait Times

* How are Emergency Room Wait Times Calculated?

We value your time at Renown Health and prioritize providing accurate, up-to-date emergency room wait times. Our estimated ER wait times reflect the average time from check-in to being seen by a medical professional during triage, where patients are prioritized based on the severity of their condition. However, please be aware that actual wait times may vary due to unforeseen emergencies or factors. 

ER wait time is updated every 15 minutes and represents an approximate average wait time for informational purposes only. 


Renown Health is home to three 24/7 Emergency Rooms that provide the highest level of emergency and trauma care in the region:

  • Renown Regional Medical Center is the only Level II Trauma Center between Sacramento and Salt Lake City. Located near downtown Reno, this Emergency Room has several helipads and ambulance banks to intake patients requiring emergency care.
