Graphic: Average Time In The ER At Baylor, Presby, and Parkland

Our newest data set is from numbers provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the fiscal year 2013, as corralled by the Texas Tribune in its interactive Texas Hospitals Explorer. For the next month, we’ll be posting graphics for three similarly sized hospitals: Texas Health Presbyterian Dallas (898 beds), Baylor University Medical Center (876 beds), and Parkland Memorial Hospital (769 beds).

First up, the average time in the emergency department among patients who are eventually admitted to the hospital. Graphic by Renee Blostein, interactive designer for D Magazine.
