Parking Lot Closures Begin at Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph
Dec 20, 2016
(ST. JOSEPH) – Site preparations for the new Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph Pavilion are underway resulting in parking lot closures to accommodate the new building site and construction crews. Effective December 12, sections of the Napier and Laboratory lots will be closed. Effective December 19, access to the facility from Morton Avenue (near the Emergency Department) will be closed. A temporary entrance to the Emergency Department will remain open off of Langley Avenue.
Throughout the duration of the project, the main parking garage on the St. Joseph campus will be reserved for patients, visitors, and volunteers. Lakeland team members are being encouraged to park offsite with shuttle service available to and from the facility beginning January 3, 2017. Lakeland security will be onsite to help ensure limited disruptions for community members.
“We understand that parking will be tight during construction and our primary concern is providing ease of access to our facilities for all patients and visitors,” said Loren B. Hamel, MD, President and CEO, Lakeland Health. “We appreciate our community’s understanding and cooperation as we look forward to this new addition.”
Based on research of parking patterns during peak times at the hospital, a total of 900 spaces are in use at any one time. After construction is complete 1,300 parking spots will remain available on campus.
