A 2016 article on emergency room waiting times showed that CharterCARE’s two hospitals -- Our Lady of Fatima Hospital and Roger Williams Medical Center -- are home to emergency departments with some of the shortest waiting times in Rhode Island, according to a recent study posted on GoLocalProv.com

Both hospitals were in the top three in terms of shortest emergency department waiting times. The average waiting time for an emergency department patient to be seen by a doctor at Fatima Hospital was 23 minutes. The time at Roger Williams was 20 minutes. The hospital with the highest average in the state was 73 minutes.
