Grenoble-Alpes university hospital uses ViaDirect wayfinding and information solutions developed for hospitals!

The Grenoble-Alpes (CHU) university hospital in the South-East region of France has been using ViaDirect wayfinding and information solutions for several months.

Since summer 2018, patients and visitors of Grenoble-Alpes CHU (university hospital) can easily find their way and have access to news and curated information thanks to two ViaDirect wayfinding interactive kiosks.

Active since 1962, Grenoble-Alpes university hospital hosts around 2 120 beds, and has 9000 medical staff, including 2000 doctors, and managed 110 311 admissions through the emergency reception (2017 numbers). Orange Healthcare, a digital division of Orange group, has been a partner on this installation.
