Public parking changes at Kelowna General Hospital

Changes have been made to public parking at Kelowna General Hospital in an effort to reduce congestion and improve the overall parking experience.

The following changes will take place starting on Thursday, October 12th:

  • A new hospital-wide parking payment system will be installed to offer further convenience to patients and visitors using the public parking areas.
  • All levels of the Clinical Academic Campus parkade will now be dedicated to public parking.
  • The Rose Ave. surface parking lot, which was previously dedicated to public parking, will now be reserved for staff member and physician parking only.
  • The northwest corner lot on Abbott St. and Strathcona Ave. will be dedicated to staff pass-holders. Public parking directly in-front of the building will still be available.
  • Carpool stalls for staff members will be relocated to the first level of the west parkade.

The changes will not have an impact on the overall number of parking stalls available for staff members, patients or visitors.

Patients and visitors will, however, see changes to the existing parking system, which will transition to a pay-by-plate system rather than by stall number or displayed receipts.

Additional parking pay stations will be installed inside the Centennial lobby, the Interior Heart and Surgical Centre and in the emergency department.

The new payment system will work with the popular PayByPhone app, meaning you won’t have to leave the hospital to purchase or extend your parking.

Hourly, daily and weekly parking rates will be available for purchase from the parking pay stations and extended parking passes can be purchased through Interior Health by calling 1-855-491-6498.

Exemptions to paid parking at Interior Health sites for patients, clients and visitors with extenuating circumstances are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

You can visit the Interior Health website for more information on those parking exemptions.
