As part of Montefiore St. Luke’s Cornwall's (MSLC) ongoing efforts to ensure the safety of its patients, visitors and staff, the hospital has implemented a new Visitor Management System (VMS) to assist in identifying visitors and account for their time in the building.

The VMS requires visitors to present a valid, government issued ID, such as a driver’s license, when entering the building. The ID is scanned, and information will be electronically transferred directly onto the visitor pass.

This system maintains a secure environment by capturing visitor information accurately, while keeping all information confidential.

Please see the Parking section for those options
