SOMC Parking Service Expands To Meet Growing Need

Visitors to Southern Ohio Medical Center can now use free parking attendant services at all hours every day.

Since last May, the service at the hospital has gone from parking about 500 cars to more than 4,000 cars each month. Now the attendants are on duty 24 hours every day in front of the Emergency Department.

The parking service is also available at the front entrance to the hospital from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Medical Office Building C from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.

“We encourage you to not worry about finding a parking space,” Mary Kate Dilts-Skaggs, director of Emergency Services, says. “Whether you are coming to the Emergency Department for service, outpatient testing, or visiting a friend or relative, just pull up to the curb, hand the attendant your keys and proceed inside. When you are ready to leave the attendant will bring your car to you.”
