Safety Precautions

We have implemented many safety precautions to make valet operations safe. For patients and visitors who need valet parking, these procedures are in place to keep everyone safe.

  • Face mask required: All vehicle occupants must wear a face mask when they drive up for valet parking unless they have a medical reason for not being able to do so.

  • Airing out vehicle: Drivers are asked to lower their windows when they arrive.

  • Required PPE: Our team members wear face masks, eye protection and single-use gloves. Valet attendants change their gloves after driving each vehicle.

  • Steering wheel covers: Disposable steering wheel covers are used when moving vehicles.

  • Key sterilization: All keys are sterilized with disinfectant.

  • Vehicle sanitation: All high-touch areas such as the gear shift, handles and window switches are wiped down with disinfectant before the vehicle is returned to the patient or visitor. A steering wheel tag indicates that a vehicle was sanitized.

  • Social distancing markers: There are marks on the ground to remind patients and visitors to remain six feet apart when waiting for their vehicle.

  • Work area sanitation: Valet attendant work areas are cleaned and documented regularly. This includes podiums, door handles, keyboards, time clocks and desks.

Self-park

While we are taking many measures to keep you safe, we understand you may prefer to self-park. If you or a loved one choose to self-park and require assistance, our valet attendants will come out to your vehicle with a wheelchair to ensure you get inside safely.
