The public is advised that the main entrance of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) will be closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic from 8:00 p.m. tomorrow, Thursday, March 5, to Monday, March 9.
The closure is to facilitate the renovation and reconfiguration of the entrance, including the establishment of a lay-by for the drop off and collection of persons visiting the QEH and the installation of security scanners.
The Admissions and Outpatient Appointment Sections of the Medical Records Department will be impacted.
As a result, the processing of admissions and outpatient appointments will be relocated to the Main Medical Records Department, located on the main corridor just before 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 outpatient clinic on Friday, March 6; Monday, March 9; and Tuesday, March 10 will be accommodated.
Both sections will return to their permanent location and resume normal operations on Tuesday, March 10.
During the temporary closure, persons entering the hospital are asked to do so through the glass doors on the ground floor of the Lions’ 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, March 10, when all persons visiting the QEH will be required to pass through the newly-installed security scanners. Failure to comply will result in persons being denied entry.
