Those visiting Taylorville Memorial Hospital are being told to use the main entrance after new security measures were put in place at the hospital Monday. One of the measures includes changing the entrance directly into the Janice Hopper Auditorium into an emergency exit.
TMH Marketing Consultant Allyson Phillips said in a statement to Regional Radio News:
“Taylorville Memorial Hospital is urging our patients, visitors and employees to park in our west lot and use the main lobby entrance. Beginning Monday, the hospital door near the Janice Hopper Auditorium will only be used as an emergency exit. This change has been implemented to better ensure the safety of our patients, visitors and employees. We have additional safety measures in place or in progress, but we will decline to discuss them publicly for the safety of all who use our hospital.”
