SMCHH Fast track – the “express lane”

The SMCHH Fast track area was set up to treat less critical emergencies. It’s an extension of our emergency room designed to care for minor emergencies such as the flu, lacerations or rashes, to be treated in a comfortable and convenient setting.

All patients coming to the Emergency Room will register at a single location and be assessed by a registered nurse. Depending on the patient need, a patient with less-urgent issues will be put on the Fast Track and critical patients will be taken to the Emergency Room. This process means less wait time and more specialized care for you.
