Beginning Wednesday, Oct. 1, St. Cloud Hospital will expand the free valet parking for patients to include E entrance to better serve its patients and families. Currently valet parking is available at A entrance. Valet service is offered from 6:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, with the exception of major holidays. People wishing to use the valet service should drive to either A or E entrance, where they will be greeted by a parking attendant who will assist them. The hospital is contracting with Prestige Parking & Valet of St. Cloud to provide the service. The additional valet service is necessary to help ease parking congestion as crews begin working on demolition of the north parking lot to make way for construction of a north parking ramp. When work is complete, the campus will have more than 500 additional parking spaces. The parking upgrades are part of a $200-million construction project designed to ensure that the hospital can continue to provide quality care in a quality facility by: adding more private patient rooms; adding more state-of-the-art operating rooms; updating our intensive-care units; replacing an outdated and inadequate loading dock, warehouse and distribution center.
