SVH: ER Fast Track

Emergency Department Fast Track Gets Our Community Back On Track …

A new service offered by Simi Valley Hospital’s Emergency Department puts patients with minor illnesses and injuries on the ‘Fast Track’ to recovery.

Fast Track was designed to help reduce waiting times in the Emergency Department by allowing those with less severe conditions to be seen separately from those requiring more critical care services. It is for those with minor illnesses and injuries, such as sore throats, fevers, sprains, ear infections, upper respiratory problems, and minor cuts and abrasions.

All Fast Track patients are taken care of in the hospital’s Emergency Department by the same highly skilled, board certified emergency specialists who provide care to all other emergency patients.

Patients may use Fast Track from 3 to 11 p.m., seven days a week. Of course, the Emergency Deparment is always open — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
