Fast Track Care Center
Sprained ankles, minor cuts or fevers all require prompt care. The Fast Track Care Centers at Sierra Medical, Providence Memorial and Sierra Providence East treat these patients alongside those suffering life-threatening emergencies.
The emergency staff has a protocol in place for patients having an acute myocardial infarction that is enacted as soon as a patient presents with symptoms. This instantly activates diagnostic and treatment modalities for heart patients, saving valuable time. This protocol helps ensure that patients get potentially lifesaving treatment such as angioplasty as quickly as possible.
