Patients, families and visitors to the Stratford General Hospital (SGH) should enter the facility using the Main Entrance accessed off of General Hospital Drive or the Courtyard Entrance off of West Gore St. Patients coming to Emergency should enter using the Emergency Entrance on Cambria St.
Volunteers of SGH, on hand at the Information Desk located in the Lobby of the Main Building, are generally available to assist visitors to the facility from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm, Monday to Friday, with reduced hours on the weekend. If there is no one at the desk when you arrive and you require assistance, please enter the West Building and go to Switchboard, located across from Patient Registration.
SGH's "wayfinding" system is intuitive, incorporating colours, names and numbers. Learn how to read the signs so you can easily get to an appointment, visit or pick up a loved one.
Anatomy of the Room Number - E1-500
- "E" = Building - Indicates the building the room is in. E = East. There are three buildings at SGH. Each building has a colour designation, East = Yellow,West = Blue and Main = Green. The colour designation is shown on directional signs within the hospital to help users situate themselves and navigate their way to specific areas in the hospital. Additionally, in any public corridor where you cross into another building you will see beacon signs which will identify the building you are entering.
- "1" = Floor - Indicates the floor that the room is on.
- "500" = Room Designation - Odd and even numbers are placed on opposing sides of the corridors, similar to a street. Room numbering starts at major access points in the building (Elevators, Lobbies, Main Entrances). Every room has a clearly displayed room number beside the door. In addition, all room number signs within the hospital feature tactile Braille for the visually impaired.
