Grand River Hospital’s KW Site has several parking options for you, depending on your length of stay. We’ve outlined the main options below to help you.
Please note that change machines are located in the emergency department waiting room and the KW Site’s main lobby across from Tim Hortons. We also offer an ATM in the main lobby across from Tim Hortons.
Parking garage - short and long-term
Our main parking garage is for short-and longer-term stays. Rates are $2 per half-hour, with a maximum daily rate of $10 per exit.
When you receive your ticket, please take it with you. Payment (cash/coin/credit) can be made upon exit at the pay station located in the foyer on the first floor of the parking garage. Payment can also be made by credit card at the exit gates located on the third floor of the parking garage, which exits on to Green Street.
Main loop - short term "Pay and Display"
- The first floor of the parking garage is designated parking for renal, oncology, and accessible parking permit (APP) holders only. If you do not have a valid permit for these areas, you will receive a parking infraction.
- If the parking garage is full when you enter, there is a grace period on the ticket that will allow for exit at no charge to you.
The main loop is intended for short-term parking. The rate is $2 per half-hour, with no daily maximum.
You can pay for these spots at several pay stations located around the main entry loop. After you’ve paid, you’ll receive a slip with the time of expiry; please place this face up on the dash in your vehicle. Spaces for people requiring accessible parking are also available.
Kaufman lot - short term "Pay and Display"
The Kaufman lot is a convenient spot for accessing services at the Kaufman Building at the KW Site, located on 40 Green Street. The lot is intended for short-term parking. The rate is $2 per half-hour, with no daily maximum.
You can pay for these spots at the pay stations in the lot, or at stations located around the main KW Site entry loop. After you’ve paid, you’ll receive a slip with the time of expiry; please place this face up on the dash in your vehicle. Spaces for people requiring accessible parking are also available.
Emergency department lot
This parking lot is available for emergency department patients and visitors. It is located outside the KW Site’s emergency entrance, at King Street West and Pine Street in Kitchener.
