St. Luke’s campus cuts entrances starting Wednesday

Effective Wednesday, Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare is restricting the number of public entrances at the St. Luke’s Campus. The five restricted entrances that will be closed to the public will still be accessible by identification badges used by employees and medical staff.

FSLH’s Safety Department proposed the decrease in the number of unattended entrances as a way to increase the safety and security of patients, visitors, employees and medical staff. Limiting public access to several entrances provides greater manageability of traffic in and out of the building.

Effective May 2, the public entrances are as follows:

Entrance 1 ­ Main Lobby Entrance

Entrance 3 ­ OB Care Center Entrance (Champlin Avenue Entrance)

Entrance 4 ­ Professional Office Building (POB) East Entrance

Entrance 7 ­ Allen-Calder Main Entrance

Entrance 8 ­ Emergency Department

All visitors will continue to use the Emergency Department entrance between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.

Steve Magnussen, manager of Security Operations, said "This change allows us to better serve the patients and visitors who come to the hospital for care or to visit a loved one. We want to remind the community as they come on to Campus to please follow the informational signs that will direct you to locations to park near our public entrances."
