Still not really an excuse for expecting everyone to provide information on a posting that had less meat on it than a bone given to a German Shepherd after 2 days.

Re: St Gall train station to hospital

Why should people use family illness as an excuse to use other people? If someone I knew was ill, I would provide the information needed to get an informed answer, not just some random rambling. It's fairly evident from the OP's "rating" that communication is not his strong suit. Sometimes pepople just need a good boot.

If it's the Cantonal Hospital, take bus line 1, 4 , 7 or 11. They all depart from Main Station Square and stop at the Cantonal Hospital. Most of those lines have 5 or six departures per hour, line 11 has only four on workdays, two on Saturdays and one on Sundays.

Unlike Zurich and most other Swiss cities, bus tickets can be puchased at vending machines onboard.

Actually, the SBB station St. Gallen - St. Fiden is just a few hundred meters from the Cantonal Hospital (Main station: 2 km), but express trains do not stop there, and finding the entrance to the trail that leads to the hospital may be a bit tricky. There may be signposts right next to the station, but I'm not sure because I grew up there and needn't pay attention to signposts.

As highlighted above - there are nine hospitals in St. Gallen - saying which one would have helped. Futhermore if the OP is able to post on EF they are able to check www.sbb.ch

The logical chain of events is - person in hospital; don't know address? Google address; don't know how to get there? Copy address into SBB.CH

Finally, if it was an emergency, i'd either be jumping in a car/taxi from where I lived/worked - or doing so from the main station.

And, to answer the question, I have been the person dealing with this sort of situation first hand.

The statistical probability of the patient being at the Cantonal Hospital is at least 90%, simply because all the other hospitals are peanuts, and most of them are specializing in fields other than cancer. The only exception, as far as I know, is the Klinik Stephanshorn, serviced by bus line 1.

How do you google an address that you do not know?

In the case of the Cantonal Hospital, sbb.ch gives you only one of the four lines I mentioned above. Logical? Maybe. Practical? No.

if the reason is this important, I would get a taxi from the station to the hospital. Every second could count.

Well most of that nastiness wasn't really necessary was it? If you don't like the post just ignore it. Why do you have to be such unpleasant bullies? I hope you feel ashamed.

Re: St Gall train station to hospital

This isn't a support forum for dealing with cancer, nor a medical forum, nor "yahoo answers". The OP's been a member for around a year, and should know how to formulate a question.

It's not exactly an urgent question. If it were an urgnt medical need, then one takes a taxi, or ambulance, or someone who speaks German to ring the hospital. One doesn't start a thread hoping for some directions.

And as it isn't an urgent question, one could actually write a proper question. Sorry to those all defending the OP, but it's a form of trolling imo.

Re: St Gall train station to hospital

It all boils down to this: misunderstandings can be best avoided by just including a bit more detail in the opening post, when requesting help;

e.g. "I have a sick relative in <insert name> hospital (I assume he should know) in S.G. and would like to know which bus to take from the station".

Not too hard, and now we would all know to tread a bit more lightly.

I personally would use the resources of the internet, but if requesting local knowledge here, I would write as above - no real personal details, but the gist is given.

It still amazes me how people are so economic with their typing on internet forums, as if you have to pay per character (like txtng). Even I can type a few lines at a time with two fingers. How hard can it be to write "en" after "St. Gall" in the thread title - for me, this and the OP set the tone for this request.
