Patient Drop-Off/Patient Pickup
To prevent unsafe traffic conditions and congestion on Second Road in front of the Medical Center (Hospital) Main Entrance, vehicles will be required to “make the turn” and continue around the corner for a convenient and safe place to pick up and drop off patients. Employees and students who are dropped off for work or classes are encouraged to do so in front of the First Road Parking Garage across from the Medical School Entrance.
