Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 8, several changes will be made to the current hospital entry points to improve the entry/screening process for patients, visitors, and staff. The changes are being made in response to feedback, as well as upcoming construction projects. We appreciate your continued support during this time.
Fountain Lobby Entrance
Faculty and staff will now be able to enter 24/7 which matches the hours of access for patients and visitors. We’ve used your suggestions to design this entrance which includes separate lanes of entry with directional signage to ease traffic flow.
Pomerantz Family Pavilion, Level 2 skyway
We know that this is one of the busiest entrances/exits for our patients. To help ease traffic flow and ensure social distancing, we’ve made some changes to get you where you need to go faster.
Between the hours of 6 a.m. and 6 p.m., staff should not use the Level 2 skyway. Instead staff may use the Ramp 4 tunnel to enter and exit (see map for details).
After hours and urgent access to the building is available using the Level 2 skyway. The call box can be used to gain access. View this call box here.
The Level 2 skyway in PFP will continue to be accessible 24/7 for patients and visitors.
Main Entrance, Level 2
This entrance from the Level 2 skyway will be open to patients, visitors, and staff from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday. Screening operations in the Main Entrance lobby will be moved to Level 2 near the escalators. There will be separate lanes of entry with directional signage to ease traffic flow.
Main Entrance, Level 1
The staff-only entrance on Level 1 south of the main entrance will continue to be open 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Patients and visitors should be redirected to use the Fountain Lobby Entrance or the UI Stead Family Children’s Hospital Main Entrance.
