On exterior signs, the acute site name should have visual prominence with the logo and Fraser Health signature (name) used as secondary identities to show that the acute site is part of the Fraser Health system.
- To increase visibility of facility names, avoid periods within acronyms.
- Capitalize only the first letters in a facility or department name.
- Do not use all capital letters, except for EMERGENCY.
Emergency Department signs
Wayfinding signs for Emergency should be in the corporate blue.
The actual EMERGENCY sign should be in red when used on the building exterior or exterior signage.
Community services signs
Fraser Health community sites include urgent and primary care centres, mental health and substance use centres and home and community care offices. Some of these offices have multiple Fraser Health tenants, so the Fraser Health logo with tagline should have visual prominence.
Individual departments, such as Home and Community Care, and Mental Health and Substance Use, can be listed on the exterior signs or not depending on the site’s needs.
Public health service signs
Public Health services signage should use the overarching program name Public Health. If there is room on the sign, the specific program name can be included in smaller font below Public Health, e.g. Health Protection. To maximize the sign’s visibility, omit words like unit, service and office when listing the services offered at a location.
Long-term care signs
Long-term care homes that are owned and operated by Fraser Health should display:
- The words long-term care prominently next to the Fraser Health logo.
- The Fraser Health signature (name) should be less prominently displayed in the top white section of the sign.
- The blue section should state the facility name.
