THUNDER BAY -- The region’s hospital has finally solved its patient drop-off problem.
The road in front of the main entrance of the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre has always been a fire lane, up until now.
Patients and their family members are now able to park for up to 10 minutes in the assisted pick-up and drop-off lane. Executive Director of Capital Planning and Operations, Anne-Marie Heron, says they had to work with the architect and submit the plan to both the city and the fire department.
Heron adds that so far it's had a positive impact on patients and their families.
