What is Fast track?

When you arrive at our Emergency Department with less serious illnesses and injuries, a triage nurse will evaluate your condition and send you 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 ER. If your condition ends up being severe or critical, you will have access to all the resources of our Emergency Department.
