Our current door to doctor time:

Patients with non-life threatening conditions or wounds will be sent to our Fast Track Department while patients in critical condition are administered at our Emergency Department. Separating patients by the severity of their illness or injury results in less waiting time and a higher level of care.

Fast track

When patients arrive at our Emergency Department with less serious illnesses and injuries, a triage nurse will evaluate their condition and send them to our Fast Track area for treatment. Fast Track is not an urgent care center – it is an "express lane" through the Emergency Department experience.

Our Fast Track Department has 12 cardiac monitored beds and is open seven days a week from 10 AM to 10 PM. Outside of these hours, minor illnesses are treated in the main department. If your condition ends up being severe or critical, you will have access to all the resources of our Emergency Department.
