New directional and identification signage at SMHC
For several years, SMHC has been studying several concepts of directional and identification signage. The directional and identification signage is the primary tool to ensure and facilitate smooth navigation throughout complex places such as hospital centres. The novelty is the addition of letters as a new method of designation of our pavilions. Pavilion A, Main Building and Connecting Building (loading dock); Pavilion C, Boiler Building; Pavilion D, West Wing; Pavilion E, Chapel Building, Human Resources; Pavilion F, Daycare Centre; Pavilion H, Hayes Pavilion (Annex). See plan below.
- What happens during admission?
The Admitting Department is located on the Ground Floor of the Hospital, in room G-308. Upon your arrival, the staff will help you to complete your admission. Should you be transferred to one of the floors following treatment in our Emergency Department, a member of our Admitting Department will go to see you in your room. If your admission has been scheduled in advance, you will be called to confirm the date and time of your admission.
