A message from the Michigan Medicine Leadership Team
Dear Michigan Medicine community,
As you are aware, it is a high priority for us to improve patient access to care, including providing adequate and convenient parking. In the last few days, we have begun to share information about changes in parking space allocations that were recommended by a cross-disciplinary Advisory Committee convened last year to identify options to improve parking and transportation. These changes outlined reallocation of select gold and blue spaces in various parking structures and flat lots, with the intent of creating an additional 280 patient and visitor parking spaces in the P3 (Taubman) parking structure.
We have received comments and suggestions from our community, which recognize the need for additional patient parking, but also express concern about the options currently under consideration. As a result, the Michigan Medicine Leadership Team has determined that an additional period of study is warranted, to further enhance the good work completed by the Advisory Committee.
The Parking Update Open Houses planned for March 25, 27, and April 2 will be postponed and rescheduled later this year. Our new goal to implement parking changes is later this summer.
Thank you for your voices and support to improve the patient care experience, while seeking a balanced solution for parking and transportation overall.
Michigan Medicine Leadership Team
