Erlanger joins several other Chattanooga businesses and organizations, such as Chattanooga State, the Chickamauga Battlefield and the Riverbend Festival, by launching its own app that can be accessed online or via smartphone.

The app is intended to provide patients and visitors to Erlanger an interactive, way-finding tool. The app uses both maps and detailed walking directions, officials said. 

Although Erlanger officials said there will still be employees posted throughout the hospital to direct you to your destination, the app is useful for those who would rather use a smartphone to find their way around. 

The app, called PointsMap, can be downloaded here
