Accessibility Alert - Elevator work at CMH, Oct. 25 - Nov. 6

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

CMH is changing its building names, level numbers and room numbers in preparation of the handover of the new Wing A. This was necessary as all life safety systems for the new build were brought on-line October 24, 2017.

As such, CMH's elevators need to be reprogrammed to reflect the new wing and level designations. Below is a schedule of this work, which will cause some slow down in elevator service. Signs will be added when a car is being worked on. Note that there will always be one elevator car working in a bank at all times. 

Please allow some extra time to get to your appointments and be patient when visiting family and friends. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause.
