Emergency Department

At Brandywine Hospital, our Emergency Department team's focus is to put you at ease when you're in our care - with exceptional, prompt and compassionate care. Our Emergency Department is designed to promote rapid door-to-treatment times, easy accessibility and emergency support that begins before the patient ever arrives.

Brandywine Hospital's Emergency Department offers advanced technology and treatment areas to facilitate triage, diagnosis and treatment of acute illnesses or injuries. We offer experienced, compassionate emergency care - 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients receive care from a team of board-certified, specially-trained physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners with expertise in emergency care.

What sets us apart?

Fast Track service: A dedicated unit within the ED designed to treat minor injuries and illnesses, from cuts and sprains to severe flu symptoms.

Private patient rooms: Spacious and comfortable rooms accommodate patients who need tests or treatment and include space for the patient's family.

Specialized cardiac care: The hospital's cardiac program features a Heart Station – one of the area's most comprehensive diagnostic cardiology programs – with convenient scheduling; two cardiac catheterization labs; and access to leading cardiothoracic surgeons from the Temple Heart & Vascular Institute.

Advanced communication and technology: EMS staff in the field can transmit EKG and other patient information to the hospital straight from an accident site or ambulance, allowing for advance cardiac preparation at the ED and quicker treatment for the patient.

Wait Time Information

About our ER Wait Time

The Emergency Department (ED) average wait time is provided as an informational service to the public. It is approximate, and based on a rolling average that is updated four times an hour and does not represent the actual current activity in the ER waiting room.

The ED wait time represents the time it takes from arrival until a patient is initially seen by a Clinical Professional (Physician, Physician Assistant or Advanced Practice Nurse). Patients are triaged upon their arrival in the ED. They are then seen by a Clinical Professional in an order based on their complaint, condition, and the reason for their visit.

If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1.
