Memorial Hospital Main Entrance Locked at 6 P.M.

Memorial Hospital’s Main Entrance will be locked at 6 p.m. every evening beginning Monday, January 29, 2018. Visitors may still enter through the main entrance, but they will have to press the button on the wall and identify themselves before the door will be opened for them.

“Safety is a top priority,” Harold Courtois, MHS CEO said. “This is a big building and we feel it is important to know who is coming in after hours.”

The registration desk is staffed until 6 p.m. “Once the registration desk staff have gone home for the day, it is up to our inpatient and emergency department staff to monitor who comes in the building,” Courtois said.

The Emergency Entrance is always locked. Patients must press a button and be let in by staff. The North and East Entrances are both locked at 5 p.m.
