$40-million pill to cure parking ills

HOSPITALS: LHSC and St. Joes have both submitted plans
London hospitals plan to spend about $40 million to cure current parking problems and prevent new ones.

Both London Health Sciences Centre and St. Joseph's Health Care have submitted plans for new parking garages to the region's health overseer, the South West Local Health Integration Network.

LHSC is asking to build a 941-space garage at Victoria Hospital on Commissioners Rd. at Wellington Rd., where patients regularly face frustrating searches for a spot to park. That pressure is only expected to grow with completion of the North Tower and the transfer of programs from St. Joseph's.

St. Joseph's has asked for approval for a 674-space parking garage at Parkwood Hospital on the south side of Commissioners, to handle the Regional Mental Health Care facility when it's built.

Both projects will be paid for from parking lot revenues, said Dave Crockett, vice-president of facilities management and restructuring for both hospitals.

Crockett said Victoria Hospital has already taken measures to ease congestion by rescheduling clinics and using shuttles to transport patients from other facilities.

The parking garage proposals go to the LHIN board for consideration Jan. 27.
