While The Ottawa Hospital dedicates the majority of its on-site parking for patients and families, finding a parking space can be a challenge at our peak clinic times. As such, we recommend that you allow sufficient time to ensure you arrive on time for your appointment.
Patient drop-off and pick-up is possible at all entrances, but is limited due to the amount of traffic. Meter parking is also available at each campus to allow short-term parking for patients and visitors. It is strictly enforced.
All patients and visitors parking lots and meter parking have accessible parking spaces. Parking rates for these spaces are the same as other parking rates.
Automated parking lots
All parking lots are automated except for Riverside Lot B.
Take the parking ticket with you inside. When you have completed your appointment you can pay by cash or credit card at one of our pay stations, or you can pay by credit card with express exit at the parking lot exit gates.
Grace period after payment to leave facility is 20 minutes.
Pay stations: Cash or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express).
Express exits: Credit card only (Visa, MasterCard or American Express)
