A new payment system for parking at Vernon Jubilee Hospital will start Nov. 1st.
Interior Health says it will change to a pay-by-plate system rather than by stall number or displayed receipts.
People will enter their license plate number, and will be able to add extra time, if needed.
Drivers can also use the app HangTag to pay and extend parking time on their phones.
There will be no changes to rates.
New parking pay stations will be installed inside the lobbies of the Polson Tower, Jubilee and Emergency entrances, and one pay station, located at the surface lot on the east side of the property, will remain outdoors.
“The new system has been well received at other sites, including in Kamloops and Kelowna,” says a release from Interior Health.
Hourly, daily, and weekly parking will be available for purchase from the parking pay stations.
Exemptions to paid parking requirements at IH sites apply to patients, clients, and visitors with identified extenuating circumstances based on medical or financial hardships that have been reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
