QEH main entrance closing for renovations
The main entrance of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) will be closed to both vehicular and pedestrian traffic from 8 p.m. Thursday through Monday.
This temporary closure is to facilitate the renovation and reconfiguration of the main entrance and will feature the establishment of a lay-by for the drop off and collection of persons visiting the QEH, and the installation of security scanners at the entrance’s interior.
It will affect the Admissions and Out-Patient Appointments Sections of the Medical Records Department. The processing of admissions and out-patient appointments will be relocated to the main Medical Records Department located on the main corridor prior to the Laboratory Department.
However, only patients discharged from the Accident and Emergency Department and those with referral letters from private medical facilities, which require them to be seen in an Out-Patient Clinic on Friday, Monday and Tuesday, will be accommodated during this time.
The Admissions and Out-Patient Appointments Sections of the Medical Records Department will return to their normal location and resume normal operations on Tuesday.
During this closure, pedestrians accessing the hospital are asked to do so through the glass doors on the ground floor of the Lion’s Caribbean Eye Care Centre located to the right of the main entrance.
The main entrance will be reopened to vehicular and pedestrian traffic on Tuesday, from which time, in order to gain entry to the hospital, all persons will be required to pass through the newly installed security scanners. Failure to comply will result in the individual or individuals being denied entry to the premises. (PR/SAT)
