If you need to dash to an emergency room, Iowa’s apparently the place to do it the fastest. A national study finds Iowa has the speediest average for emergency room visits, with two-hours, 18-minutes. That’s well ahead of the national average, which is almost an hour-and-a-half longer.
The top five fastest states, behind Iowa, are Nebraska, South Dakota, Vermont and Wisconsin. The study from Press Ganey Associates found Americans spend the longest in E-Rs in Florida, New York, Utah, Maryland and Arizona had the slowest emergency room visits at nearly five hours, more than twice Iowa’s time.
