At ECU Health Medical Center, we want to ensure that our patients, their families and our visitors have immediate access to health care. A major part of this access is providing adequate and close parking to the hospital.
The parking needs of our team members are also a priority.
Team member parking is available in various locations across the campus on a first-come, first-served basis.
Parking at ECU Health Medical Center will continue to evolve as the campus grows.
Parking Permits & Distribution
Free parking is a benefit of employment. All ECU Health Medical Center team members, medical residents, physicians, allied health professionals, volunteers and students will be required to register their vehicle(s) and display a valid parking permit. New team members receive parking permits during orientation.
Team members are encouraged to use the crosswalks and be aware of their surroundings when walking to and from work.
Team members working night shifts may park in the E-2 or E-3 Visitor Lots between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. The vehicle being parked must be registered or called in for clearance as an alternate vehicle, 252-847-5376.
To ensure our disabled patients and visitors have adequate parking, employees with either a permanent or temporary disability must complete the Disability Parking Permit application located here: https://myvidant.org/business/audit/Pages/Home.aspx.
The Disability Parking Permit Application assists the ADA Director in determining whether those team members with physician-documented disabilities are eligible for exception to ECU Health Parking Policy. Restrictions certified by your medical provider should not be for parking purposes only. The ADA Director will review the Physical Demands Analysis of your position to determine the impact of the restriction on your ability to safely perform the essential functions of your job.
Accommodations may include:
- Approval to park in accessible spaces in employee designated lots
- Use of the employee shuttle
- Approval to park in accessible or non-accessible spaces in designated lots
Team members must already possess a North Carolina or other state handicapped placard issued to them in their name. Parking Management has access to the NC DMV database and will verify the applicant is also the placard owner. Submission of an application using a placard issued to someone other than the team member may result in disciplinary action.
Monroe Conference Center
Registered attendees of events and trainings in the Monroe Conference Center will park in the A2 Lot adjacent to the conference center. Event facilitators are responsible for distributing parking passes for the conference center parking area. Only vehicles displaying conference center parking passes are authorized to park in those designated spaces.
Special Clearance Requests
Special clearance is required any time you are on campus and park outside your designated parking area. This includes parking in the visitor lots when visiting family and friends or if you are a patient. To request temporary parking, call 252-847-5376 and leave your name, department name, car make and model and your license plate number. After three days a temporary parking pass should be obtained.
Your safety is our main concern. Please use pedestrian sidewalks and crosswalks, and call ECU Health Medical Center police at 252-847-8568 for escorts when needed. Please be aware of the Police Assistance stations located throughout the campus. Pressing the red button will allow the police dispatcher to know where you are.
The parking policy will be enforced 24 hours a day, seven days a week including holidays. Team members who violate parking regulations will be subject to fines and, in some cases, disciplinary action.
