Parking for Patients & Visitors

Share This Page

Onsite parking is available at all Niagara Health sites. Signs at each location will direct you to park in the lots designated for patients and visitors.

A gated system is in place at our three large sites (St. Catharines, Niagara Falls and Welland) and the Niagara-on-the-Lake Site. Pay and display systems are in use at the Port Colborne and Fort Erie sites. At the St. Catharines Site, we have also added new spaces for parking to better meet the needs of our patients and visitors during peak times.

When parking in lots with the gated system, there are three options to pay by cash, VISA or MasterCard. The parking system cannot take debit or debit cards.

  • You can use your VISA or MasterCard, swiping upon entry and exit. The same card must be used to enter and exit. No ticket is required.
  • You can take a ticket upon entry into the parking lot. Bring the ticket into the hospital with you – do not leave it in your vehicle. There are kiosk at the entrances, and you can pay by cash, VISA or MasterCard before leaving the building.
  • For those with tickets, you can also use your VISA or MasterCard to pay at the exit gate. You would need to insert your ticket into the machine, followed by your VISA or MasterCard.

When parking in pay and display lots, please purchase a ticket in the machine and display it on your dashboard.


Your parking dollars contribute to the purchase of necessary patient equipment. Niagara Health appreciates your support.
