When people enter your hospital’s campus, what’s the first need they’re faced with? Ultimately, they’d like to see a doctor, visit a friend, or head to work. But their first challenge is finding somewhere to park. And with multiple lots that can fill up quickly throughout the day and night, that’s often not a simple task. That’s why one hospital took action to change the way people park on their campus.
Real Time Availability
At Seattle Children’s Hospital, they recognized the need for vehicle counts to give them data on how the hospital parking lots were being used. But with multiple lots and garages operating at all hours, manual counting was a laborious process. It also wasn’t very accurate since cars could come and go during the hours it took to collect the data.
They wanted a system to give them detailed reports on parking usage statistics. But even more importantly, they wanted a way to share that data with patient families, visitors, and employees. With their multiple lots and the often urgent need to get into the hospital quickly, wasting time looking for parking was particularly stressful.
OpenSpace at Seattle Children’s
Ultimately, the hospital chose the OpenSpace platform from Parking Logix to keep track of data and share it with users. To read more about why they chose OpenSpace, what challenges they faced, and how OpenSpace is changing parking in their hospital lots, read the full case study here.
