Low Wait Times

Accidents and illness can happen fast, but at the MetroWest Medical Center Emergency Departments at Leonard Morse Hospital and Framingham Union Hospital, you’ll find fast emergency care. We work to keep our wait times low and address your medical crisis as soon as possible.

Please remember, we provide care to the most critical cases first. Patients are evaluated on arrival by a registered nurse and are then seen by an emergency medical provider based on severity. If an ambulance arrives with a critical patient or there is an emergency situation, the wait time for other patients may be affected, and wait times are always subject to change.


We want you to have the support of family and friends. In order to maintain your privacy and confidentiality, as well as maximize our efficiency to treat you, we may limit visitors to two at a time. We also ask that they remain in your room and others wait in our waiting area. Please be aware that Hospital staff are prohibited from giving out information about you to anyone without your permission.

Free WiFi Access

MetroWest Medical Center provides free WiFi so patients and visitors can connect to the internet.


MetroWest Medical Center provides complimentary parking lot access at both of our campuses.
