Visitor value pass system:
Value passes can be purchased at the Cashiers Office or at the parking booth from the attendant.
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.
