Emergency Department




The Emergency Department is staffed by board certified emergency medicine doctors, residents and nurses. Specialists from 10 different areas including internal medicine, orthopedics, ENT, pediatrics, surgery, ophthalmology, GI, cardiology, interventional radiology and OB/GYN are on call 24 hours a day to provide consultation with the emergency department physicians. The OSUMC nursing staff is one of the most highly skilled groups in Tulsa with a large percentage of staff members possessing advanced certification in emergency care.


Wait Times

Wait times reflect the time from check-in to care being initiated by a physician. Estimated wait times are updated every thirty minutes and are based on the average wait of patients seen in the previous hour. Patients are not brought back to the treatment area based on time of arrival alone. Treatment is provided to the sickest patients first. The OSU Medical Center Emergency Department works to keep every patient's wait time as short as possible while providing the highest quality medical and psychiatric care.
