North entrance driveway at Cox South closed to vehicles during construction

The driveway in front of Cox South's North Entrance will be closed to vehicle traffic beginning Monday, Aug. 10.

As part of the facility improvements happening on the Cox South campus, the canopy at the North Entrance of the hospital will be rebuilt. This construction at the North Entrance will lead to temporary changes that will affect our patient discharge process.

Although the North Entrance will remain open during the construction project, beginning Monday, Aug. 10, the North Entrance drive will be closed to vehicle traffic. The entrance will remain open to foot traffic.

Discharged patients will be available for pickup at either of the entrances on the west side of the hospital – the West Pavilion Entrance or the West Tower Entrance.  The East Entrance (along National by the former ED) will also be available for use for discharging patients, if needed.

The expected timeframe for the completion of the canopy project is two months.
