Wait Time/Triage Services
When you enter the emergency departments at Middlesex Hospital, the Shoreline Medical Center or the Marlborough Medical Center, you will be seen by a nurse, skilled in assessing your symptoms. Some initial tests may be taken at this time and you will be placed in the first available room. Patients may be assigned to different areas within the emergency department, depending on the severity of your injury or illness.
Designed for injuries and illnesses that are urgent, but not life-threatening, Express Care is staffed by physician assistants, nurse practitioners and emergency nurses. Express Care operates at all three of our emergency departments, but hours may vary. Call us for current hours of operation.
