Parking information by hospital site

parkingThere are TWO types of parking lots available to hospital visitors:

    To access the interior underground parking lot, follow the roadway that passes directly in front of the hospital entrances until you reach the STOP sign at the end of this road. Turn left, then immediately turn left again and follow the ramp down to the underground parking lot. The display boards provide up-to-the-minute information on the number of available parking spaces on each parking level (P1-P4).

Accessible via Decarie Blvd., the main parking lot is located below the main plaza at the Glen site

There are 38 handicapped spaces located on the P1 level.

Passes are only valid for the interior underground parking.
