Construction leads to Temporary Changes at Smiths Falls Site Emergency Parking Lot

Smiths Falls, ON – The Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital’s $43 million Smiths Falls Site Redevelopment Project is now in the final year of the two and a half year project. In May 2010, the Hospital opened its new 58,000 square foot patient care wing. In June 2010 construction started on the renovations of the 1950s wing and in October 2010 renovations will begin on the 1960s wing.

The renovation of the 1950s wing, now under way, includes major exterior work which will necessitate affecting the parking arrangements at the Emergency parking lot located off of Cornelia Street.   Landscaping and additional water catch basin’s are part of the work to take place that will see the expansion of the current Emergency parking lot  to 39 permanent spaces as well as improved access to the Emergency Department.

PLEASE NOTE –  The current entrance gate to the Emergency parking lot will be closed effective 6:00am Thursday August 26th, 2010 to allow for the above mentioned ground work in the Emergency parking lot .

As a result, approximately 22 of the 35 temporary/permanent parking spaces will be lost for a 3 – 4 week duration as construction takes place. So as to facilitate access to the emergency lot during this short period of time, the current Exit gate to the Emergency parking lot (B) will also be used for Entrance to the remaining parking spaces.  Patients and visitors accessing the Emergency Department may also park in the main parking lot (A) located on Elmsley Street.  In addition, provision has been made to afford people accessing the Emergency Department only to use a temporary parking lot (C). Please see the following diagram referencing the above.

We apologize for the inconvenience but this work will help complete the very important renovation of the Smiths Falls Site.
