St. Joseph's Hospital: Visitor Parking Information and Maps (including accessible spaces) and Public Transit

Parking challenges at St. Joseph's Hospital

For those planning to park at or near St. Joseph’s Hospital, please ensure you leave extra time to do so. Due to the high number of people coming for care at St. Joseph’s Hospital, our two parking garages located on Grosvenor Street and on Cheapside Street are often at capacity Monday to Thursday between 9:30 am and 2 pm. ‘Lot full’ signs are posted when the parking garage(s) are full. Metered parking is available on the streets around the hospital. 

As parking availability isn’t guaranteed at or nearby the hospital, St. Joseph’s encourages patients and family caregivers to consider making alternate travel arrangements when coming to the hospital, such as using public transit, taxi or being dropped off and picked up. Drop off areas are available at Entrance 1 and 2 on Grosvenor Street and Entrance 4 on Cheapside Street. 

St. Joseph’s recognizes the frustration the lack of parking availability may cause and apologizes for any inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we seek solutions to this issue.
