For Immediate Release
Arnprior Regional Health Compliant with New Parking Fees Last week the Ontario government announced plans to make hospital parking more affordable. Hospitals who are charging more than $10 a day must now provide discounted weekly or monthly passes that can be shared between patients and caregivers and allow in and out privileges. In August 2015, ARH increased parking rates to $4 a day and increased monthly parking passes to $40 per month. Parking is available 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-aweek at both the front and the back of the hospital and there are clearly designated handicapped parking spaces. ARH is no different than any other hospital as parking dollars help towards funding operational costs. When we increased our parking rates from $2 to $4 in August 2015 it was to offset the cost of the much-needed facility renewal project which is about $5 million over the next 3-4 years. The current parking fee at Arnprior Regional Health is well below the newly established provincial limit and the Grove Nursing Home is a no fee parking lot. Monthly passes for the hospital may be purchased at the registration desk in the emergency department. These passes are fully compliant with the direction provided by the Ministry of Health.
