Just like CAMC General, CAMC Memorial has had heavy crowding in the ambulance bay parking area at times. We know this has caused you major issues and quite a bit of inconvenience, so we have been working on a permanent solution. In order to meet a long term resolution, we have worked hard to find convenient, accessible, reserved parking for our EMS providers. Our goal has been to find another entrance, parking and unloading area for non-Emergency Department patients. These are the patient discharges, patient appointments, patient procedures, etc.

 

Effective immediately - CAMC Memorial now has four (4) permanently assigned, non-emergency "AMBULANCE  PARKING ONLY" spots at the front entrance of the main lobby to the Heart and Vascular Center. These four parking spots are marked with signage for "ambulance parking only" and security will heavily monitor these spots. Any non-ambulance vehicles will be towed. These 4 spots are directly in front of the main entrance to the Heart and Vascular Center (HVC) lobby, with access via 33rd Street. If you are bringing a patient into CAMC Memorial for an appointment, procedure, direct admission to a floor,  or picking up a patient for discharge - please use this area to park your ambulance, load and unload your patient, and bring the patient in and out via the HVC main lobby. This is for non-emergent patients only. Please do not bring an ED patient or critical patient through the HVC lobby. If these 4 spots are full, please use the ED ambulance bay as always. You can easily see all 4 spots from 33rd street before making the turn into the HVC circle, so you won't have to circle through if they are full - just proceed on to the ED entrance.

 

All patients coming to the ED, and critical interfacility transports -  please use the ED ambulance bay.

 

If you find this alternative parking helpful, please let us know. If you have ideas/suggestions that we can improve on, please let us know that as well.

Together we can give our patients the best care available and improve patient flow. Please feel free to contact me any time with ideas/suggestion or needs.

Thank you,

Becky Oakley
