May 21, 2010

Gainesville, FL – Determined to meet the needs and expectations of the community they serve, North Florida Regional Medical Center (NFRMC) along with parent company, HCA have gone mobile. Emergency room average wait times are now available via text (SMS) message on mobile phones.

Users can text ‘ER’ to phone number ‘23000’ and enter their zip code to receive recently reported average wait times at up to three local HCA emergency rooms. The closest ER is always displayed first with North Florida Regional Medical Center appearing at the top of the list for greater Gainesville zip codes. Standard text messaging rates do apply.

Board certified emergency physicians and qualified staff combined with the best practices and the latest technology make up the emergency department at NFRMC. The hospital’s strong focus on enhancing care and improving ER processes has dramatically reduced wait times to below national averages. Not only can ER wait times be accessed via text message, times are also available on the hospital’s Web site at www.nfrmc.com.
