Navigating the Renovation

A major renovation and expansion of the Emergency Department and Main Entrance has required that we reroute patient traffic to a new temporary entrance called the Canopy Entrance. Follow along with the photos and descriptions below for a guided tour of how to enter the hospital.

After having pulled onto the Hospital Campus from Dewey Street, notice the parking lot to the left. It is marked with a “P” for parking. Pull in there and park.


The same parking lot can also be accessed from the Monument Ave. Extension entrance to the Hospital Campus. It is on the right.


The parking lot includes a shelter to wait for the campus shuttle. The shuttle runs 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday – Saturday. If you like, you can also walk to the Canopy Entrance.


To walk from the parking lot, follow the signs to the crosswalk. This is the first of two road crossings.


Signs continue to point the way. Note that the ambulance is for ambulance traffic only. Pedestrians must stay on pedestrian walkways.


 After a short distance, there is the second of two road crossings.


Once you have crossed the street, follow the path and fencing to the large canopy.


As you approach, you will see that masks are required.


If you took the shuttle, this is where it drops you off.


At the base of a ramp and once you reach inside, you will find friendly and helpful staff to guide the way or assist you with a wheel chair. 


Ascend the ramp on foot or with the assistance of a wheel chair and attendant.


Once inside, signs point the way to the service you need. Friendly staff members are available to check you in and provide assistance navigating.
