As you probably know, most people arriving at hospitals are already under stress. While some drivers are simply employees, or better yet arriving to give birth or visit new babies, much more of them are coming for medical procedures or to visit sick family members. The last thing they want to be busy with is wasting time looking for parking.
You may have heard of parking guidance and may have just as quickly written it off as too big a hassle for your hospital’s lots. Most
parking guidance systems involve wiring each spot, digging to install a sensor, and incurring long closures and large expenses in the process.
But there’s an easier, and much simpler way you can reduce parking stress at your medical facility.
OpenSpace by Parking Logix was created as a user-friendly, plug-n-play solution that is up and running in just two hours. Offering the same accuracy in counting open parking spots, the same brightly lit signage you’d expect, and easy integration with hospital and parking apps, OpenSpace is parking guidance simplified.
Instead of wiring each spot, OpenSpace installs sensors at the entry and exit points of each lot, in your choice of rubber speed humps or directly in-ground. Data gathered by the sensors is instantly conveyed to LED signs at your lots’ entrance, integrated apps, and the Cloud backend.
Information on which lots have open parking spots can then be viewed by patients, employees, and visitors so that they know where to look for parking, and where they shouldn’t bother.
Data also offers hospitals valuable insight into peak parking times and which lots are under or overutilized to help them make better decisions about parking management.
Visiting the hospital is often stressful. Parking when you get there shouldn’t be.
OpenSpace can improve patient satisfaction and keep people moving at your medical facility.
