Building 2 Main Entry Upgrades - New bathrooms and wayfinding kiosks

We’re investing in Canberra’s health facilities.

Canberra Health Services is renovating public bathrooms and adding digital wayfinding and appointment check-in kiosks to Building 2 main entry at Canberra Hospital In late 2019.

New public bathrooms in the Level 2 Main Entry will be more aesthetically pleasing with new fittings and fixtures.

While the renovations are underway, there are alternative bathrooms available in these locations:

  • Building 3, Level 1 accessible via stairs or lift:
  • Building 1, Level 2 past main lifts (turn right towards Gastroenterology)
  • Building 1, Level 2 past main lifts (turn left towards Pharmacy)

New digital wayfinding and appointment check-in kiosks will facilitate outpatient appointment check-in and wayfinding around the Canberra Hospital campus. 

Touch screen kiosk content will include maps and directions to help patients and visitors find their way.

Consumers will be able to check in to outpatient appointments using a barcode from a letter, Medicare card number or by entering personal details through the kiosks located in the main entry space.
