Gudelsky Hospital Entrance Closed

The Gudelsky entrance at Lombard and Greene is closed until further notice because of emergency repairs needed on the outside of the building.

Staff who normally use that entrance will have to use the Shock Trauma entrance or the main hospital entrance. Patients and visitors will be directed to the main entrance on Greene Street. Please help us prioritize the safety and convenience of patients and visitors by helping them navigate to their destination.

Here are some reminders and safety tips to keep in mind during this period.

While scaffolding is being installed over the next seven to 10 days, the sidewalks along Lombard and Greene approaching the entrances may be closed for certain periods, until safety tunnels are installed. Please use the sidewalks on the other side of the street. For your own safety, do not walk in the streets.

  • Shuttles that normally picked up passengers at the Gudelsky entrance for the parking areas, UMMC Midtown Campus, and other locations will now move to the Shock Trauma entrance for pickup. Please plan accordingly.
  • Cyclists should temporarily lock their bicycles to the fence enclosing the surface lot of the Medical Center Garage.
  • The designated smoking area near Gudelsky will be closed; smokers will have to use other designated areas behind Shock Trauma or Paca Pratt, on Penn Street near the School of Nursing, or on the University Park Plaza.
  • Once the scaffolding is installed, the entrance may be reopened, pending a safety evaluation. Watch for updates on the UMMC Insider and through email.

Repairs are needed to correct some recently discovered deterioration in the facing stone on the front of the building. The work may take several months, but it is needed for the safety of our staff, our patients and visitors, and the general public.

We apologize for any inconvenience that the repairs may cause. If you have questions, please check with your manager or email
