Picking up a Patient
Parking charges are waived for drivers taking a patient home after a hospital stay. If picking up a patient, please park in the visitor parking deck and bring the parking ticket in to be validated. Move your vehicle to the main entrance only when the patient is actually leaving the room. A staff member will escort the patient to the entrance and remain with the patient until you arrive. If your family member or friend will have an extended stay, ask a parking deck attendant for information about a weekly parking pass.
The Ohio Fire Code requires that fire lanes be left open. Cars left unattended in fire lanes around the hospital will be towed at the owner's expense.
Metro bus schedules are available in the main lobby foyer.
We provide 24-hour security staff who make frequent rounds. Security staff are also available to escort visitors to their cars. Call extension 47604 from a hospital phone.
