New Brunswick, NJ August 8th, 2018 SKIDATA, Inc. Announces The Completion of the 8 Car-Park Installation for Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, Washington.
SKIDATA’s first installation with Providence Health & Services – the largest healthcare provider in the state of Washington, has just wrapped up in Spokane with Towne Park as the operator. The project was installed in phases to allow for the immediate use of each parking area as it was completed. This was a very well thought out installation that kept the disruptions to everyday parking operations to a minimum.
Jim Bradley, Senior Director of Operations at Providence Health & Services shared his thoughts on the process, “Excellent work and great partnership between SKIDATA and Towne Park to improve parking service and access at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.”
The 8 garages include a total of 33 lanes of equipment and 9 POF’s. SKIDATA’s tried and true Power.Gates column devices were used at most entries and exits with corresponding Barrier.Gates. Hospital staff parking access was facilitated with the use of the Smart.Gate – barrier only lanes with goosenecks housing the readers in the lane. For paid parkers 6 cash & credit card Easy.Cash APMs were installed as well as 3 credit card only Credit.Cash APM units.
Sweb.Validate has been deployed to provide convenient online validations throughout the entire hospital with the use of a simple browser-based interface. An additional convenience feature is the ability to purchase long term tickets at the APMs. The medical center is also incentivizing paying for parking at the APMs by providing a $1 discount for parkers who pay at the machines instead of in the exit lane itself.
SKIDATA is excited about this long-term relationship with Providence Health & Services and looks forward to future opportunities.
