Northwestern Medical Center and local veterans are now offering a free-of-of charge valet program, assisting patients and visitors around the hospital campus. NMC’s Veterans Sponsored Valet Service is staffed by Veterans and other local volunteers, and helps with the parking personal vehicles as well as offering transportation in a six-passenger enclosed electric vehicle. Visitors who park in NMC lots can get a ride to the main entrance, or to other on-campus buildings such as the Cobblestone Health Commons.
As NMC grows, so grows the need for help in navigating the hospitals campus and outpatient buildings along Crest Road. To help accommodate this, the new free service will operate on weekdays during times of highest traffic on campus. The program is currently offering service on most weekday mornings and will grow to greater hours as the service continues to build.
NMC’s Veterans Sponsored Valet operations are conducted from a podium at the main hospital entrance – watch for the curbside sign at the main entrance when you arrive for service availability.
The local Military Service Organizations – Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 758, American Legion Post 1, American Legion Post 88, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 753, Marine Corps League, and Elks Lodge 1566 have worked hard to launch this new service which they are proud to offer to hospital’s patients and visitors. Veterans have served their country and continue to serve their community.
Volunteers for the program are still needed. For more information about the service or to volunteer, call 524-1299.
