This contributed to a significant improvement in public and patient circulation within the hospital. The Gallery houses reception/information desks and serves as a front door for the New Emergency Department, Endoscopy Department, Ambulatory Surgery Suite, Outpatient Laboratory, Heart Center, Hospital Admitting, Patient Accounts, and Maternity Department. The galley also provides direct access to public support services, such as:
