Fast Track Services

For non-life threatening emergencies, The Emergency Center at the OGHS Main Campus also offers a Fast Track department where you'll experience less wait time. Here, patients are seen for less emergent ailments, such as:

  • Fever
  • Sinus Infection
  • Rash
  • Sore Throat
  • Headache
  • Earache
  • Sprain
  • UTI
  • Minor cut or burn
  • Insect bite
  • Cold or Flu

Patients report to The Emergency Center at the Main Campus, where they are triaged. Once the visit is determined to be non-life threatening, the patient is routed to the Fast Tract department for treatment.

The Emergency Center - Main Campus

The Emergency Center on the Main Campus is located on the first floor, open 24 hours a day and staffed with specially-trained physicians at all times.

Our Main Campus ER features twenty-two treatment rooms with cardiac monitoring that allow patients to be seen quickly in a private setting. Inside our ER, you'll also find an ultrasound and full X-ray room for fast, convenient care. Our emergency room physicians, nurses, techs, and support staff are trained to quickly identify, evaluate, and care for patients with any level of acute illness and injury. Our team has the emergency trauma and critical care experience needed to monitor patients closely and act quickly in the event of a life-threatening event.

The Emergency Center- South Campus

The Emergency Center at Opelousas General Health System South Campus is conveniently located on the first floor with full-time physician access. This 14-bed department is designed to accommodate patients who have problems that do not require the intensive services of the Main Campus ER. You may visit the South Campus ER for sore throats, fever, minor musculoskeletal injuries, or non-critical cuts that may need stitches.
