Courteous parking to ensure maximum lot capacity

To ensure our patients, visitors, staff and physicians have adequate parking Standard Parking (SP+), our parking management company, is enforcing parking regulations across all of St. Joseph’s sites. This is in an effort to address the ongoing complaints regarding cars taking up more than one spot. All users of our parking facilities are asked to pay attention to parking regulations and how you park your vehicle. Vehicles taking up more than one spot will now be ticketed by SP+.

As well, those who park for more than 10 minutes in patient drop-off designated areas, in handicapped parking without a permit, at loading docks, and other restricted areas will also find their vehicles being ticketed.

Fines range from $30 to $60 depending on the type of infraction.

Your respect those using our parking lots is greatly appreciated. If you have any parking questions please contact SP+ at
