Ongoing improvements

We continually seek new ways to reduce waiting times and improve the emergency care experience. Recent enhancements include:

  • Streamlined triage and registration process, so patients are examined sooner.
  • Electronic tracking board and electronic health records, resulting in increased efficiency, better communication among healthcare providers, and enhanced safety and quality.

Please note: Patients with life-threatening illnesses or who need immediate treatment are seen first. For your convenience, for minor injuries or illness, consider Malta Med Emergent Care at Exit 12 or Urgent Care at Wilton Medical Arts instead.
