Pay-by-plate parking, which has been in place at Saskatoon City Hospital (SCH) and St. Paul’s Hospital (SPH) since January 2018, will be implemented at Royal University Hospital (RUH) and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital (JPCH) by mid- to late-January.
“Implementation at RUH and JPCH means the parking payment system used at all Saskatoon hospitals will now be the same for patients and visitors,” explained David Yanciw, Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) Manager-Parking and Grounds, Saskatoon. “The SHA is committed to making improvements to the parking system based on feedback from patients, families, and visitors.”
Pay-by-plate parking is the most inexpensive solution to replace the current, aging gated systems at all four Saskatoon hospitals. Parking rates will not be affected by the change. Payment can be made indoors at pay machines in various locations or by downloading the hangTag™ app to your mobile phone.
The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) will have commissionaires available to help patients and visitors adjust to the new parking payment system.
