(Atlantic) Visitors to Cass County Health System have a new tool to assist them in finding their way around the main building. Just inside the front entrance, next to the information desk at the base of the staircase, is an information kiosk. This week a new wayfinding system was added to the kiosk. Visitors can use the touch-screen directory to select any service or department in the building. When they make a selection, a map with a route line will appear, along with written directions to their destination. The maps can then be printed right at the kiosk.
“We know there has been a lot of confusion for our patients and visitors with the relocation of so many departments over the last year,” said Sara Nelson, Public Relations Director. “Being able to view and print a map should help people find their way more easily.” The kiosk is located next to the information desk so the volunteers can assist visitors if necessary.
To get started, just touch the screen anywhere and the home page will come up. Select the top button “How do I get there?” to open the wayfinding directory. Select the first letter of the destination, L for Laboratory, and a list of all the L destinations will appear. Select the destination, Laboratory, and the map will appear with written directions below. “I think people will find this system very easy to use,” Nelson noted. “Of course, this doesn’t mean visitors shouldn’t ask for help. Our staff and volunteers are always happy take you where you need to go!”
