New Entrance for Moses Cone Hospital
A new main entrance to The Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital opened to patients and visitors on Saturday, Feb. 1. The entrance takes people into the hospital through the recently opened North Tower. How people get to the hospital and where they park has changed.
Patients and visitors now enter the hospital campus from N. Church St. The short drives takes people into a convenient parking deck. From there, a covered walkway leads past a fountain and into the main entrance – called “Entrance A.” (People heading to the emergency department or short stay center will get to those destinations as before.)

“The new entrance makes parking and getting into the hospital so much easier,” says Moses Cone Hospital President Judy Schanel. “We have also made a number of changes to improve the flow through the hospital. Visitors will find it easier to remember where they parked and patients will find it easier to go home.”
Those changes include renaming the three patient and visitor entrances into the hospital. Besides “Entrance A” (the main entrance) there is “Entrance B”, which is the emergency department entrance and “Entrance C,” which is the former main entrance off of Northwood Ave. That becomes the preferred exit for patients leaving the hospital for home.
A temporary corridor connects Entrances A and C, making it much easier for visitors to see patients with rooms on the other side of the hospital. A permanent corridor opens in early summer.
