Fountain Valley (Calif.) Regional Hospital is offering a free downloadable mobile application to connect the hospital to consumers.

The application enables users to view wait times for the emergency department; register to visit the ER at a specific time for non-emergent care; and complete a "My Data" list of allergies, emergency and physician contacts, insurance information, medical history and medications. It also enables access to hospital maps and directions, a list of frequently called hospital numbers, a first aid guide, health library and an online physician finder.

The application operates on iPhone, iPad, iTouch and Android products, with BlackBerry support coming in May. More information is available at
