Rapid Assessment Clinic
The Rapid Assessment Clinic is for patients who are experiencing serious cardiac concerns. Sometimes, patients with serious cardiac concerns are referred to the Rapid Assessment Clinic by staff in the Urgent Care Centre or the Emergency Department. They may not be experiencing a life-threatening situation, but they do need to be seen by a cardiac professional as soon as possible.
The Rapid Assessment Clinic is located on Brock 1 of our Hotel Dieu Hospital site at 166 Brock Street.
If you are coming to the Rapid Assessment Clinic, please remember to bring the following:
- Your appointment slip which includes the time and date of your appointment
- Your Health Card, also known as your OHIP card
- A complete and up-to-date list of your current medications provided to you by your pharmacist, or all of the medications you are currently taking, in their original drugstore container. This includes insulin, inhalers, any prescribed creams or eye drops as well as any non-prescription medications or supplements such as herbals and vitamins
You are also welcome to bring a family member or friend for support or personal assistance and they are welcome to attend your clinic visit with you if you wish. You may also bring a snack in case your clinic appointment is delayed or runs late
