Need help finding where to go?
Bluewater Health’s new “wayfinding” system is intuitive, incorporating colours, names and numbers. Learn how to read the new signs so you can easily get to an appointment, visit, or pick up a loved one.
Building Name: Bluewater Health in Sarnia is identified as three buildings which reflect the neighbouring streets: Norman Building (green); London Building (blue); and Russell Building (orange). Each building has a colour designation, shown on directional signs within the hospital to help users situate themselves and navigate their way to specific areas in the hospital. Additionally, in any public corridor where you cross into another building, you will see beacon signs which will identify the building you are entering.
Level and Room Number: We use an alphanumeric system to help locate rooms. The first letter indicates the building in which the room is found (N=Norman). Next is the floor level the room is on (Level 2), followed by the actual room number (139). Every room has a clearly displayed room number beside the door. In addition, all room number signs within the hospital feature tactile Braille for the visually impaired.
