In a news release on Wednesday, LMH Health announced that patient parking will be affected as expansion and renovation work at the LMH Health Cancer Center begins on Monday.

The release notes that the first phase of that construction will be “felt immediately in parking for patients and visitors,” as it includes resurfacing and regrading part of the hospital’s parking lot. That work will take approximately four weeks to complete, according to the release.

“We know patients often have a lot on their minds when coming to the hospital, and our goal is to make this transition as patient-friendly as possible,” LMH Health President and CEO Russ Johnson said in the release. “Our efforts to minimize the stress caused by the parking changes include communication with current patients, signage, extended valet hours, additional way finding staff and more. Parking area construction is scheduled to end in early July, and many of the parking spots in front of the hospital will be available again at that time.”

In the meantime, additional parking for patients and visitors has been designated on the west side of Arkansas Street, and patients and visitors will also be able to make use of free valet parking and wheelchair transportation from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the duration of this phase of the project.

The cancer center and all oncology services will be closed Friday as the team relocates to the third floor of the LMH Main Campus, where patients will be served as renovations are in progress beginning Monday. According to the release, cancer center patients should plan to enter the building through the hospital’s Arkansas Street entrance.

The same goes for patients at Precision Cancer Care, a radiation oncology clinic with a separate entrance to the main campus. The clinic’s exterior door will close for three weeks beginning Monday, and those patients will also need to enter via the Arkansas Street entrance.
