Fast Track Service 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Seven Days a Week
North Shore's Fast Track Service, within our Emergency Department, takes care of minor emergencies requiring urgent care.
Fast Track Service is an alternative to the regular Emergency Department, where treatment is determined on the severity of a patient's condition.
Fast Track is designed to treat patients who need immediate attention for small emergencies such as lacerations, sprains, fractures, bruises, scratches, sore throats, ear infections and minor rashes.
Patients are referred to Fast Track through the regular Emergency Department and registered at bedside to save time. Average time from triage to discharge is about 60 to 90 minutes.
