Welcome to Access, the complete wayfinding system at MD Anderson Cancer Center. Access makes it easy to find your way to and around the MD Anderson campus. You can begin by simply telling Access what you want to know.
Enter your Medical Record Number, followed by your date of birth, then click the FIND button to see your appointments and get directions.
Access helps you find places using pathway, landmarks, signage and other tools to guide you to and around our large campus. Nearly any clinic or service you need is in or near a landmark, or along or near a pathway.
First, use this web site to get customized, printed driving and walking directions to your destination.
When you arrive at the MD Anderson campus look for the street name and Numbered Entrance Marker of your destination.
Once inside an MD Anderson building, use an access touch screen kiosk to get more customized printed directions to your destination.
Then, follow the Access pathway - marked with blue Access signs and carpet stripes. Use your customized, printed directions to follow the signs and maps along the pathway that show you which direction to travel.
Once you arrive at the landmark, use the maps and signs to find your exact destination.
Note: If your landmark is an elevator, follow the Access pathway to that elevator. Once you arrive, an elevator directory will guide you to the correct floor.
Numbered entrance markers are large signs that greet employees and visitors driving into the Texas Medical Center and MD Anderson Campus. Using the customized information available through the Access Internet site, visitors can easily identify the entrance marker for the entrance they need to use.
Landmarks are big, public spaces that contain a physical feature--an elevator, a piece of art or special architecture. For example, "The Tree Sculpture" landmark is home to a tree sculpture. Elevator lobbies -- "Elevator R," for example--are also landmarks. Landmarks are all connected on the Access pathway.
The Access pathway is like a highway and uses signs and maps to lead users from landmark to landmark as well as to shuttle points and skybridges. Most often the pathway follows a hallway, but it can also use skybridges, stairways, or corridors to connect users to destinations.
