Parking Lot Paving Project

Posted Apr 12th, 2022 in News

We are pleased to share that HDS is going ahead with the significant infrastructure improvement of paving our parking lot. Although it will cause a temporary inconvenience, we look forward to a refreshed and safe parking lot for our staff, physicians, volunteers, patients and their families. As a result, 19 additional parking spaces will be added, upon completion.

If you are coming to the hospital for an appointment or to a visit a patient, please familiarize yourself with the details below, to ensure a smooth and stress free visit while navigating our temporary parking disruptions.

For your information, the timeline of each phase and a facility map is below.


The project will be scheduled in three phases to minimize disruption as much as possible. The work will begin the week of April 25 and completion is expected by the end of May. Timelines are contingent on weather permitting.

For your information, the timeline of each phase is below.


Phase 1 - Complete!


Phase 2 - In progress, but nearing completion

This phase of the paving project will disrupt 50% of Lot A and the outpatient front entrance driveway. The areas that are under construction are highlighted in yellow on Map A.

During Phase 2:

  • Lot A (50%) – Parking is permitted for patients and visitors only
    • Patients accessing Lot A for an appointment can park in Lot A, but will need to enter and screen at Lot B

  • Lot B – Screening will begin at 8:15am
    • This lot will be designated as accessible parking for patients only
