PAID PARKING FOR PATIENTS AND VISITORS TO RESUME MONDAY NOVEMBER 2ND
As part of NBRHC’s early response to the COVID-19 pandemic, paid parking was suspended by the Health Centre.
As our Health Centre re-establishes services, paid parking for patients and visitors will resume Monday November 2nd.
While the price hasn’t changed, the Health Centre did use this time to make some upgrades to the parking system at our 50 College Drive site. The new system is highly efficient and easier to use and will provide patients and visitors with more choice and flexibility.
Patients and visitors will still take a ticket with them into the Health Centre. Before leaving they may choose to pay for their parking at one of the pay stations (same locations they were at before) or pay at the gate when exiting the parking lot.

Is the price for parking going up?
No. The daily flat rate remains at $6.00 and monthly passes can be purchased for $50.00.
New with this system is the option to purchase a week or two week pass at the pay station. The rate for one week pass is $20.00 and a two week pass is $30.00.
What are the pay options with the new system?
Patients and visitors will now have the option to pay either inside at a designated pay station or via tap at the gate before they exit the parking lot.
Those interested in purchasing a day, week, two week or monthly pass can now purchase it directly at the pay station (before these were only available at the Cashier).
Where are the pay stations located?
Pay Stations are located in the hallway near the Outpatient Lab; in the Main East Lobby and beside the Cafeteria at the Main West Entrance.
I have purchased a day/week/monthly pass. How do I enter and exit the parking lot?
With a day, week, or monthly pass, you will need to keep your parking ticket for the length of time purchased. So when you enter the lot the next time, do not take a new ticket. Instead, insert your ticket into the machine—it will be returned for you to use again and the gate will open. It is the same to exit the lot. Insert the ticked, it will be returned to you and the gate will open.
Please remember to take your receipt after purchasing a pass in the event you lose your ticket.
What if I forgot to pay at the pay station?
For those who have forgotten to pay inside at a pay station, the exit machine will accept credit cards and debit tap.
What about patients being swabbed for COVID-19 at the Assessment Centre Clinic?
Parking for patients accessing the COVID-19 Assessment Centre Clinic will remain free in Lot #9 during the assessment centre operating hours.
Daily Parking: $6.00 flat rate
Day Pass: Day Pass allows for same day in and out privilege and is available for purchase at the parking pay stations for $6.00. From the parking pay machine press Day Pass, this will change the screen to say pre-pay up to 23:59.
Monthly parking passes: Day, week, two week and 30 day passes are available for purchase at the parking pay station.
Public Parking Lots: Lots 2, 5 & 9 are designated public parking lots. Lot 7 is located outside of SportsMED+ Outpatient Rehabilitation and is ONLY for patients using those services only.
**this information is subject to change**
Approach the parking gate and take a ticket. The gate will open and you will be able to enter the parking lot.
Before you can exit the parking lot, you will need to take your parking ticket to one of the pay stations. They are located in the central Lobby, east end; and one in the central Entrance by the Cafeteria.
At the pay station, insert your parking ticket and pay the amount shown on the screen.
Take your paid parking ticket back to your car, drive to the exit gate, and insert the paid ticket in order to lift the gates. Alternatively you can insert your credit card at the exit gate and the amount owing will automatically be charged. The system allows for a 20 minute grace period from the time you pay for parking at one of the Pay Stations in the building to the time you exit the parking lot gates. The system also allows for a 15 minute grace period for those who may simply be here to pick up or drop someone off.
Tokens will not be in use at the NBRHC in North Bay; however they will be used at NBRHC Kirkwood Place in Sudbury.
