Visitor parking rate changes as of April 1, 2019

Mar. 05, 2019

As part of St. Joseph’s ongoing efforts to ensure parking rates are fair and consistent while maintaining the sustainability of our lots, various changes are being made to visitor parking rates, effective April 1, 2019. In particular, the flat rate visitor parking fee of $4.00 at Parkwood Institute, Southwest Centre for Forensic Mental Health Care and Mount Hope Centre for Long Term Care will increase to $5.00. This is the first increase to this rate in more than 10 years. Some other visitor parking rates will decrease.

St. Joseph's makes every effort to keep prices as low as possible. Comparisons are done regularly with other hospitals in the province and St. Joseph’s lots are far below rates charged at other hospitals. It’s important to note that building maintenance of parking garages and lots are not covered by the province. St. Joseph’s lots are self-supporting and maintained by the revenue generated.

The following are all visitor parking changes as of April 1:

St. Joseph’s Hospital

  • The daily visitor parking rate at St. Joseph’s Hospital will be reduced so that it is capped at $8.00 – a decrease from the current $9.00, and down from $11.00 in 2017.
