Wesley Medical Center now offers online emergency room check-in at its four locations that provide emergency care: Galichia Heart Hospital ER, 2610 N. Woodlawn; Wesley West ER, 8714 W. 13th St. North; and Wesley Medical Center ER and Wesley Pediatric ER, which are both located at 550 N. Hillside.

The website for patients to check in is www.wesleyERcheckin.com.

The service is free.

Patients who check in online will be asked for basic information in addition to language preference, allergies and the reason for their visit in an effort to prepare hospital staff and to save time once they arrive.

The information is sent through a secure site directly to the ER the patient selects, said Susan Burchill, Wesley public relations specialist.

The hospital is also working to create a mobile phone app that allows patients to check in to the ER; it’s set to launch in early 2013.
