While every clinician working in an emergency department (ED) probably feels like their facility is the busiest around, Becker’s Hospital Review recently compiled self-reported data to create a list of hospitals with the highest volume of ED visits in the nation. The Parkland Health and Hospital System in Dallas took the top spot with 226,178 emergency department visits in 2022, followed by Lakeland Regional Medical Center in Florida at 199,927 visits and Multicare Good Samaritan Hospital near Tacoma, Washington, with 162,390 visits.

Wait, there’s more: As previously reported in JUCM, about 3% of patients leave EDs without being seen, according to federal data. At least some of them are likely to seek attention at an urgent care center.
