New Emergency Department Parking Lot Slated for Completion in August
Jul 8, 2019 Share

(ST. JOSEPH) – A new parking lot, located near the Emergency Department (ED) at Lakeland Medical Center in St. Joseph, is slated for completion in August 2019. The lot is part of the Pavilion renovation plans and will add 32 additional parking spaces for patients and visitors.

Currently, parking near the ED is limited and patients and families are encouraged to drive their vehicle to the circle drive at the main ED entrance, check-in at the registration desk, and then have a family member or Lakeland Security team member move the vehicle to the current ED parking lot or the main hospital parking garage.

“Timely and accessible patient care is always our number one priority and we appreciate our community’s patience and understanding as we work hard to enhance wayfinding and patient experience throughout the coming months,” said Rich Matthews, Director of Safety and Security, Spectrum Health Lakeland.

In an emergency, dialing 9-1-1 is always the fastest and most effective way to receive care. First responders and ambulance personal can notify ED staff on their way to the hospital and begin treatment prior to arrival.
