There will be reduced parking at the main entrance of Royal Jubilee Hospital over the next several weeks while construction is taking place.

Throughout the construction period – beginning this week and expected to last until Aug. 12 – 26 parking stalls in front of the emergency department and diagnostic and treatment centre will be impacted on a rotational basis. Parking will be reduced for various phases of the project in order to perform the work in a safe manner. At any given time, 14 parking spots could be out of service, representing two per cent of all public parking at the Royal Jubilee Hospital campus.

People with disabilities will be given priority for parking during this time and there will also be parking ambassadors and flag persons on site to assist patients and visitors.

Once completed, there will be increased parking for all patients, clients and visitors arriving at the main entrance, as well as improved access for those with disabilities, improved pedestrian and vehicle flow, and reduced vehicular congestion.
