It can be difficult to coordinate parking in a hospital setting. The needs of many users need to be taken into account and the parking setup has to work for everyone. Administrative staff, medical staff, patients, and visitors all need to be able to find parking quickly and efficiently. And there’s often one central lot that everyone seems to be drawn to despite the many other parking resources you offer.
It’s not a simple formula but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a simple solution.
A parking guidance platform like OpenSpace can solve all your parking concerns and help you streamline parking at your medical campus.
Here are five ways that OpenSpace helps hospital parking run smoothly on medical campuses just like yours:
1- Keep track of available parking spots without ever needing to wire each spot. OpenSpace is completely wireless so you can install an entire parking guidance system that meets many complex needs in just a matter of hours with almost no maintenance required.
2- Simplify parking by providing parking data at every decision point. You can start by sharing parking data on your hospital website or app with our robust API integration. You can then display availability data on signage at your entrance as well as outside each parking lot or level. Help drivers make more informed decisions about where to find available parking spots.
3- Digital parking signs can be customized to your needs including branding so that they fit your campus’ aesthetics and reflect your parking setup. You can choose how many signs to use, where to place them, and what data you’d like to share. You can share data about multiple lots on one sign, display info about multiple levels for larger parking structures, and share spots available or simply when a parking area is full.
4- Create a simple parking system that even a harried, overwhelmed driver can follow. While medical staff that arrive each day may be calm and collected, parents or loved ones of patients may have a difficult time focusing on finding a spot. The OpenSpace system takes all the concentration and guesswork out of parking and helps guide drivers right into available parking spots for a calmer wayfinding experience for everyone.
5- Make better informed parking decisions. Ever wonder if maybe you need more parking lots? When you hear complaints about difficulties finding parking, are you concerned if you have sufficient parking assets? OpenSpace gives you up to the minute parking data right from your desk. You (and your customers!) can clearly see when and where parking is available. Detailed usage data also help you make better informed decisions about if and when more parking resources are needed.
