Students coming to the medical campus by the MetroLink will get off at the Central West End stop. Once you come up the stairs (or take the elevator) to the street level, take a left and walk about a block. This is Euclid Ave. You will notice the hospital to your right. You will enter the hospital via the McMillan Hospital entrance. For a reference point, the Farrell Learning and Teaching Center (FLTC) is located just up a little on the left. The McMillan entrance is locked in the evening, however. In that case, walk up a little further and take a right at the corner. You can then enter through the street level main entrance, located across the street from the Plaza Garage. Late at night though, this entrance will be locked as well. In that case, go into the parking garage and take the escalator up to the lobby.

Regardless of the entrance you use, once inside the hospital, follow the map below.

If you are driving, you will park in the Plaza Garage located on Barnes-Jewish Hospital Plaza. This garage is directly in front of the hospital. You will take the escalator up to pedestrian bridge which leads to lobby of the hospital.

  • Follow the blue line to the Emergency Department elevator (small red square on the map at the end of the blue arrow). It will take you into the waiting room of the E.D.
  • If you have an in-person meeting with Dr. Polites, follow the red line to get to his office.
