We provide care for injuries including falls, motor vehicle accidents and gunshot wounds. Patients who need complex specialty care may be assessed and stabilized by the emergency department medical staff, then transported to Duke University Hospital when needed through Duke LifeFlight and other emergency transport services. We also accept transfers from other facilities for care related to stroke and cardiac arrest.

Emergency Room Wait Times

Wait times are a concern in any emergency department. How quickly one is seen is dependent on many factors. During peak emergency times, an emergency department provider is stationed at the emergency room registration area to perform a medical screening exam and initiate care upon patients’ arrival.
