Curb Your South Mezzanine Parking - or Risk Losing Access

Above: Parking can be difficult in the South Mezzanine lot.

Physicians are reminded to restrict their use of the South Mezzanine parking lot to short visits only. Use of the South Mezzanine lot is intended to provide easy access to the campus for physicians who come here for brief periods to round on their patients or attend meetings.

Physicians who routinely violate the medical center's policy that restricts South Mezzanine parking to four hours or less during business hours (weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.) are at risk of losing access to the lot. Warning letters to repeat offenders are being mailed to those individuals beginning this month.

"The vast majority of physicians who are on campus all day abide by the rules and park in other areas," said Chief of Staff Steve Galen, MD. "Unfortunately, a select few have chosen to park in the South Mezzanine all day, every day, making parking difficult for everyone else. We encourage you to park elsewhere, such as in Lot 8, which offers reserved parking for MDs and currently has an overabundance of these spots."
