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. In 2016, the government passed mandatory regulation to ensure hospital parking is more affordable for patients and visitors. Markham Stouffville Hospital has implemented those policies.

Assistance

Full support is available Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 9:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. at the parking office located in the visitors' lot.

Outside these hours, assistance is available to you by pressing the intercom button.
