The Shadyside Hospital Emergency Department (ED) driveway will close to foot-traffic and vehicle access off of South Aiken Avenue effective September 7th for approximately 6 weeks.
During this period, all “non-ambulance” arrivals to the ED will enter from the Posner Main Driveway to access the ED. We will relocate our ED patient valet service to the Posner Main Driveway. We will utilize the Family Health Center/Urgent Care Center lot during this six week period to valet our ED patients’ cars. This will not have an impact on current parking for the Urgent Care Center or the Family Health Center. We will relocate current staff who park in the back part of this lot to the Shadyside Medical Center Garage. An off-duty police officer (6AM to 6PM) will provide traffic control on Centre Ave at the exit of the Main Circle.
All ambulance arrivals will arrive to the ED via the Centre Avenue driveway across from the Hillman Cancer Center thru the rear of the hospital.
Signage will be changed to provide direction and easy traffic flow.
