For additional information about parking at Holy Cross Germantown Hospital, contact the Security Department at 301-557-6060.

Holy Cross Hospital
The Holy Cross Hospital parking garage is located to the left of the main hospital entrance. Valet parking is available at the main entrance.

Parking Rates: Holy Cross Hospital charges for parking on our campus. Patients and visitors receive the first 30 minutes of parking free up to a maximum of $7 per day. Valet parking costs $3 for the first hour, up to a maximum of $8 per day.

Patients and visitors who require longer-term parking because of an extended inpatient stay may purchase a longer term pass for $20, valid for seven days from date of purchase. This allows unlimited entry and exit from the garage.

Parking passes may be purchased from the hospital cashier in the main lobby during the following hours:

  • Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday, between 8:00 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Please be aware that street parking in the community surrounding the hospital is by resident permit only. Hospital patients, visitors and meeting participants who park on the community streets risk being ticketed or towed by the county.

Parking Process: Patients and visitors who park at the hospital will pay for parking before leaving the hospital (rather than pay at the exit booths as per past practice). You may already be familiar with this payment method from airports or elsewhere. By being able to pay before leaving the building, you will minimize the time needed to wait in line to exit and to have your car window open during inclement weather.

When entering the garage, you will take a parking ticket as usual.

Before leaving the hospital, you will need to pay for parking using one of three kiosks, located in the following areas:

  • Outside the main lobby of the hospital by the garage elevator on the top/fourth floor of the garage
  • Inside the main lobby of the Physician Specialty Building on the top/fourth level of the parking garage (first floor of the hospital)
  • Ground floor lobby of the Physician Specialty Building, near the entrance of the Emergency Center

Kiosks accept cash and credit cards. After paying, you will insert the now-paid ticket into a ticket slot at the gate, which will rise for exit.

We hope you like the new flexibility offered by being able to pay for parking before leaving the hospital. Thank you for your attention to the above while we continue our ongoing efforts to improve your experience here at Holy Cross Hospital.
