Emergency Department Information

Parking at the Emergency Department

  • To get to the Emergency Department turn into the main entrance of Strong Memorial Hospital and take the first right.
  • If you are driving your child to the ED, park in the adjacent lot. Once your child is settled in a care area, please move your car to the hospital parking.
  • If you are bringing in a patient you can drop them off at the door (do not go to the ambulance bay) and then park in the hospital parking garage.
