Starting September 7, 2021, the parking lot outside our office at 490 Illinois St. will be closed for construction. Valet services will be available on Illinois St. in the driveway beside the building where signs will be posted. Valet staff will be at stations and they will issue you an e-claim check to show the valet when you want your car back. The valets will park your car at the 16th street Mission Hall lot. There is no additional fee for the valet service, but regular parking rates apply: $5/hour and $35 max/day. $7 max rate for ADA customers. The valets will have hand-held units and accept cash or credit card. The valets will send the claim ticket via text or email to your phone. For patients without phones, Valet will Issue patient plastic claim check. Payment is due when your car is returned to you; you don't have to decide ahead of time how many hours of parking to pay for.  There will be patient drop off area as well starting Sept 2021 for patients being dropped off by Uber drivers, family members, etc.
