Ambulance Access

On some days over 120 ambulances transport to and from our campus. Because of this high traffic volume, parking may be limited at times. To help ensure patients being transported to the ED have immediate access, the following guidelines have been developed.

All parking in the ambulance bays and on the ED ramp is restricted to incoming ambulances transporting patients to an Emergency Department bed. This restricted area is identified by signage.
