Access changes to Kelowna General Hospital

Patients and visitors should be aware of changes to Kelowna General Hospital access as a result of ongoing construction.

The main patient drop-off area is now located at the front of the new Centennial Building facing Pandosy Street; access is off of Royal Avenue near the Emergency entrance.

A second patient drop-off area is available at the Strathcona entrance at the back of the hospital campus; access is via Rose Avenue and signage will be in place directing people to this entrance.

Patients needing to visit Emergency will use the Emergency entrance accessed via Royal Avenue.

Patients may also be dropped off at the new Dr. Walter Anderson Building across from the hospital at the corner of Royal Avenue and Pandosy Street. Parking is accessible from Royal Avenue. Patients who need to access the Centennial Building can take the elevator to the third floor and walk across the Pandosy Skywalk.

Effective Monday, June 4, the Rose Avenue patient drop off area is being eliminated to allow for construction of the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre. Pedestrian access will be provided through the construction fencing allowing people who park in the parkade access to the hospital from Rose Avenue.
