SAH Introduces Improved Parking System

– Sault Area Hospital (SAH) will be installing a new parking system during the week of June 21 which features more parking pass options and credit/debit tap payment options. There will be no rate increases at this time. SAH’s current rate of $6.00 per exit remains unchanged.

The upgraded Parking System will provide additional parking pass options, allowing patients, visitors, and families to choose the best rate that meets their needs. For the convenience of patients and visitors, SAH has now introduced a 24-hour pass, allowing for unlimited exits in a 24-hour period which will be very helpful for those that need to attend the hospital multiple times in a single day. Rates for 5-day and 10-day passes are being reduced by $10 and $15, respectively.

Payment options have been expanded to now include debit and credit cards. There will be 4 pay-onfoot stations located at the main public entrances to validate the parking receipts with cash, debit, or credit. The gates will also allow payment by debit or credit tap if those leaving the hospital forget to stop at a pay-on-foot station. Parking passes (24-hour, 5-day, 10-day, 30-day, and monthly) can be purchased at the pay stations any time of the day, 7 days per week.

Installation of the new parking system begin will begin Monday, June 21st and is expected to be complete by Friday, June 25th. The parking gates will be open during the week of installation as we transition to the new system.
