Emergency Department Registration

Emergency Department Registration - Departments & Programs, UW Hospital and Clinics

The Emergency Department Coordinators (EDCs) are the center of a fast-paced department. They are a team of just over 20 people that cover the Emergency Department 24 hours each day. They not only register patients that visit our Emergency Department, they also answer phone calls, page Doctors and admit patients. From 9:15pm to 7am the EDCs also take over the Bed Control function from Admissions. The EDCs perform an ever-expanding list of tasks and perform them under tight time constraints.

Can patients get their parking passes at the Information Desk?
