Select elevators upgraded with ‘door hold’ button

Elevators EE, F, and H have been upgraded with a “door hold” button. When pushed, the elevator doors will stay open for 60 seconds or until a floor/door close button is pushed. This extra time prevents staff and contractors transporting patients, equipment, and carts to have the doors close on them.

This feature will also be added to Elevators BA, BW, and E. Elevators that have not been upgraded have had their door open times adjusted. Staff are encourage to be careful when loading onto the elevators.
