Construction in the Atrium parking garage

An extensive construction project began in January 2021 to upgrade the P3 level of the Atrium parking garage.

Please prepare for delays entering and exiting the Atrium parking garage (the main hospital garage with entrance off of Elm St.). Families and visitors should give themselves extra time to park to ensure they are on time for appointments.

Certain areas of P4 will be temporarily cordoned off to accommodate the concrete repair work on the P3 slab. Parking will be available on all other levels of the parking garage.

For everyone's safety, please do not park in the cordoned-off work areas. Thank you for your co-operation and understanding while upgrades are being made.
