About parking

Hospitals are mandated to use parking fees as a revenue source to supplement Government funding. Parking revenues help us provide the community with programs and services it needs. In 2016 the government passed mandatory regulation to ensure hospital parking is more affordable for patients and visitors. MSH has implemented those policies.
