We’re forging ahead with our parking garage expansion project, and that means there are some big changes coming for everyone who visits the hospital campus. If you’re planning to visit us, please make a mental note to use the entrance at Toll House Avenue. As of January 21, 2013, members of the public will have access to limited surface parking but are strongly encouraged to use our free valet service, available at two hospital entrance points.
The parking garage will be closed to the public for the duration of the construction project. While work is underway, the garage will meet the definition of a construction zone. For the safety of our patients and visitors, regulations prohibit the public from entering or passing through a construction zone.
Again, the public entrance to the hospital will be the Toll House Avenue entrance. Emma Smith Drive will open for employees to access the parking garage, but this access drive is not open to the public.
Introducing Ready Ride
If you use our free valet parking service, our trained, professional valets will park your vehicle under cover in the garage. Ready Ride is our call-ahead program that will have your vehicle waiting for you at the entrance to the hospital when you are ready to leave. Simply dial RIDE (7433) from any hospital phone (or 240-566-7433 from your cell phone) and valet attendants will retrieve your vehicle from the parking garage and have it waiting for you at the entrance to the hospital.
