Miramichi Regional Hospital introduces parking fees
(MIRAMICHI) November 30, 2012 - The Miramichi Regional Hospital will introduce paid parking for both staff and members of the public on Monday, December 3.
The introduction of parking fees was announced in October 2011, and it is intended to provide funding to maintain and expand the parking lot.
Parking will cost the public $2 per visit. Options will be available for those experiencing financial hardship. In addition, volunteers at the Miramichi Regional Hospital will not be required to pay for parking. The parking system will be automated and does not require additional staff to operate.
Paid parking is implemented at all other regional hospitals across Horizon Health Network, and the revenues are reinvested back into those facilities. It is estimated paid parking could generate approximately $250,000 in revenue per year to be reinvested back into the Miramichi Regional Hospital.
