ER Express is an innovative online reservation system for the Jefferson Health Emergency Departments (ED,  and Urgent Care locations) that allows patients with non-life-threatening illnesses or conditions to reserve a time online to be treated.

ER Express streamlines the triage and intake process so that all patients are treated more quickly. Best of all, it holds your place in line while you wait in the comfort of your home!*
