Please have your ramp or valet ticket VALIDATED for patient/visitor rates at one of the following locations:
Mercy Hospital's parking validation system is intended to discourage people from parking in the ramp for non-hospital-related business and to open up additional parking spaces for our patients and visitors.
Parking ramp tickets that are not validated (stamped) for hospital-related business will be charged a $25.00 flat fee per day.
Patients have the right to allow visitors for emotional support and to participate in care decisions and education.
Patients may withdraw or deny visitation at any time.
