Reserved Parking for Mother and Baby Pick-Up
We reserve two short-term parking spaces to facilitate easy pick-up at the end of your stay. Look for pink and blue stork parking signs in front of Mitchell Hospital. A vehicle may remain at this location for 20-30 minutes. If you need more time, your support person should first choose one of our long-term parking options, then move to reserved parking when you're ready to leave.
