Driving Directions

South Campus Construction: Starting Nov. 3, we encourage south campus patients and their visitors to use valet parking in the cancer hospital front circle free with a voucher. This is our preference to provide patients with convenient access. Patients and their visitors can choose to self-park across the street in the north campus east patient/visitor garage (on Newell Drive) and walk back across Archer Road to the south campus. This is also free with a voucher. All other visitors pay $10 to park in the patient/visitor garage or $13 for valet parking. Emergency patients and those transporting them can use free valet parking at all our E.R. entrances. As always, patients and their visitors must obtain a patient parking voucher after they receive care, from their outpatient check-out, nurses’ station or other location of service; then present the voucher to the valet staff or parking attendant upon exit for free parking. For your convenience download the full map of the construction zones.
