OWASSO, Oklahoma -- What to know how long of a wait it is before you're seen at the emergency room? Bailey Medical Center in Owasso is now offering approximate ER wait times.

Users can log on to the hospital's website to see how long of a wait you're in for.

The hospital says the tally reflects the time from a patient's arrival to the emergency room to when he or she is assessed by a hospital employee.

Bailey Medical Center says the wait times apply only to those seeking treatment for minor medical issues. Patients with serious medical issues will still get priority.

According to the CDC, the average national ER wait time is approximately one hour.
