Reduced ­parking rates at ­Estrie health ­institutions

Record Staff

As of June 8, CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS users and visitors will benefit from a daily rate reduction from $7.50 to $7. Also, the free period, currently 30 minutes, will be extended to two hours. To take advantage of the two-hour free period, the procedure will be the same, i.e., users and visitors will have to register their vehicle at the pay station upon arrival.
In addition to this measure, pricing strategies for the entire health and social services network will be implemented, including free admission for two family members living in a long-term care centre and preferential pricing for users who must regularly attend an institution to receive care, two practices that were already in effect at the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS.
The new reduced parking rates will come into effect at the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS as of June 8, 2020, as announced last November by the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux (MSSS).
Special rates due to COVID-19
In the context of the pandemic, only the parking fees for the designated screening centre (DSC), located at 500 Murray Street, are suspended until further notice. The use of all other parking lots at the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS facilities is subject to a fee at all times.
In order to protect people who are hospitalized or lodged, certain facilities prohibit the presence of visitors and accompanying persons and access to CHSLDs for relatives is limited. However, certain cases are exceptions, such as palliative and end-of-life care, the maternity unit and pediatrics. For more information, visit the website.
