Fast Track Reduces Emergency Wait Times at Memorial

Chattanooga, TN

The emergency departments at Memorial Health Care System are reducing patient wait times with a new system called Fast Track. The emergency departments at both Memorial Hospital and Memorial North Park Hospital have seen a reduction in wait times and an increase in patient and staff satisfaction. The Fast Track system identifies urgent versus noncritical medical problems to help ensure that all patients are treated promptly. For more information, contact Brian Lazenby.
