L’hôpital Humber River est l’un des plus grands hôpitaux régionaux de soins de courte durée au Canada, desservant plus de 850 000 personnes dans le nord-ouest de Toronto. L’hôpital, qui compte 656 lits, 3 000 employés, environ 700 médecins et 400 bénévoles, dispose actuellement d’installations qui sont réparties sur trois sites. Modulex a collaboré avec l’hôpital sur le projet d'installation de panneaux et de solutions de wayfinding.
Hospitals have very specific requirements in terms of wayfinding with intense demands for supporting a diverse range of users. The employees group is large with over 4,000 staff and complex including doctors, nursing staff, transport staff and cleaning staff whilst the composition of the visitor group is also varied including both visitors and patients typically from a wide social background and age group. This broad spectrum of users puts heavy demands on the wayfinding system.
The resulting wayfinding program needed to balance both static and digital elements which work in collaboration to guide patients and visitors around the extensive site. Modulex were brought in as wayfinding consultants at the initial stages and have worked with Humber River Hospital on the implementation of the signage and wayfinding products including exterior and interior products.
