CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia offers Fast Track, a program that provides emergency level care for pediatric and adult patients who have minor illnesses and injuries. When patients come to the ED they go through the triage process and are assigned to ED Fast Track based on the level of medical care they require. Fast Track is designed to evaluate and treat patients with minor problems more efficiently – helping them get in and out of the emergency department faster than otherwise possible.
