Cardiac Dart (Direct Accelerated Response Team)


Cardiac DART helps ensure timely access to cardiology consultations, treatment and follow up care for Emergency Department patients.

The goal of this initiative is to improve patient outcomes, reduce Emergency Department congestion and length of stay and reduce unnecessary short stay admissions to the hospital. The Cardiac DART team includes an on-call heart doctor (Cardiologist) and a dedicated Nurse Practitioner.

Our services Include:

  • Individual consultation and follow up with a Nurse Practitioner and a heart doctor (Cardiologist)
  • Access to prompt diagnostic testing which may include ECG, Stress test, Echocardiogram and/or angiogram.
