New Signage

A new signage system – inspired by airport approach signs – will make it easier for people to find their way around the Washington University Medical Campus starting early next year. The campus includes Barnes-Jewish Hospital (BJH), St. Louis Children’s Hospital (SLCH), Siteman Cancer Center, Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM), Goldfarb School of Nursing, the Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Shriner’s Hospital.

Key Points

  • A series of signs will be installed along Kingshighway Boulevard, Forest Park Avenue and streets leading to patient-care destinations. Similar to the naming of airport terminals, a new letter system along Kingshighway — from A to F — will guide people to their destinations.
  • Another key aspect of the system is naming, and renaming, buildings and parking garages to include the street names on which they are located.
  • Names and addresses will appear prominently on all buildings and garages for Google mapping and mobile wayfinding.
  • Visuals and more information available here.
