Long-Term Parking Discounts for Patient & Visitor Garages
The Green Card provides long-term parking discounts for patients and their visitors. To take advantage of the discount, pick up a Green Card at any Hospital Information Desk.

In order to receive the discount, you must use a new card each time you exit the garage. To obtain the card after hours when the Information Desks are not staffed, page the Hospital Administrative Manager at 293-PAGE (3-7243) and enter 7899, James Nursing Supervisor at 293-PAGE (3-7243) and enter 6152 or call the Security Supervisor at 293-8500 (3-8500).
