The emergency department at a local hospital has one of the lowest “door-to-diagnosis” wait times in the country.

Becker’s Hospital Review reports that Metro Health Hospital in Wyoming is among 44 hospitals with emergency department wait times of less than five minutes before a patient is seen by a health care professional, according to Hospital Compare.

Becker’s Hospital Review says the data was collected between April 2014 and March 2015.

Metro Health had an average wait time of three minutes.

The national average was 24 minutes.
