What can I say, it was close

Hubby was taken to Wesley Medical Center through a special walkway that connects it to the Heart Clinic, on the third floor. I moved my car to other parking, and we used this entrance, the Children's Entrance to come and go. It was really simple. The manager of the cardiac unit showed me around. I went in this door that is pictured, and through the Children's Admission area to the first elevators on my left. Up I went to the third floor, and made a left as I left the elevator. Hubby was in a room right there. Reverse the procedure for dismissal. I love the child centered area in the hospital as it makes things less scary and clinical feeling. Medicine has come a long way through the years and I am thankful.

We took my sister to a day surgery centre the other day. We'd been there before but later we were taken this and that to get to the room where she was recovering. Luckily when we left there were plenty of signs showing us which way to go to get out again. I had visions of being lost in there forever.

I have been to a few hospitals that had those long connecting walkways. I assume they had didn't buildings and instead of demolishing and starting over they decided to connect them. Some go across across roads so cars can pass under.

This one does. The clinic has several specialties that do not always require the hospital, but when a hospital is needed it is good that it is connected. I trained in a nursing home once that had tunnels to a nearby hospital, across the parking lot. It was mostly for dialysis patients and for psychiatric patients who might need the hospitatl.
