Heart centre opening

Residents heading to the Interior Heart and Surgical Centre should be aware of how to access the facility.

North Okanagan residents heading to the Interior Heart and Surgical Centre in Kelowna should be aware of how to access the facility.

Once the new IHSC opens Monday at Kelowna General Hospital, patients arriving for day surgery procedures should check in at the surgical services reception located on the first floor of the IHSC.

The IHSC can be accessed by two entrances. The new Rose Avenue entrance is located under the canopy on the Rose Avenue side of the IHSC. This entrance is open daily from 5:45 a.m. to 8 p.m. After hours, this entrance can be accessed by ringing a buzzer located next to the doors.

The other entrance to the IHSC is through a link located in the main lobby of KGH’s Centennial building. This link is also open from 5:45 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day. After hours, this entrance can be accessed by checking in at the security desk located in the main lobby of the Centennial building. The Centennial Building main entrance is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
