Health Care Wait Time References

People land at this site a lot looking for wait times data. Here is a set of links for sites in the U.S. and in Canada that have health care wait time, surgical wait time and ER wait time data. I have another list with about 400 organizations on it (maybe one day when I build my own site I'll post it) so if you need something for another country just leave a comment and I'll re-post.
