Handicapped Parking: Handicapped parking stalls are marked and are located in parking lots nearest the Mountainside and Oceanside main hospital entrances. Vehicles without approved permits cannot park in handicapped stalls.
Patient/Visitor Parking Areas: Patients and visitors have priority in all Tripler parking lots, including the lots closest to the Mountainside and Oceanside entrances. The Tripler civilian police officers issue citations to Tripler employees not authorized to park in a patient lot.
For information about valet parking and shuttle van service to various Tripler locations, see page 11.
VA Garage: Veteran Affairs (VA) and Tripler patients may park their vehicles in the Veterans Affairs parking structure mountainside of the hospital, at P1, P2 and P3 levels.
Employee Parking: Tripler staff and contractor personnel should park on the lower level Oceanside parking lots. They may also park in the basement and rooftop (PB and P4) levels of the VA garage.
Additional paved parking stalls are located at the site of the old officer’s club on the hillside directly above Tripler’s Mountainside Entrance. This parking lot is open to patients and staff on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Parking Lot Security: Please lock your vehicles when parking anywhere at Tripler. Security personnel do patrol the parking areas and vehicles left there for extended periods attract their attention, but they may also attract the attention of vandals and burglars.
Overnight Parking: If you expect to be at Tripler for an extended stay, we recommend that you leave your vehicle at home. If you decide to park your vehicle at Tripler during an extended stay, you should:
- Park in the Oceanside parking lot near the flagpole.
- Ensure that all valuables are removed or are placed out of sight.
- Ensure all windows are up and the vehicle doors and compartments are locked.
- If your vehicle will be parked more than 72 hours, notify the Tripler Police by calling 433-1111.
- Patients should be able to provide their vehicle’s make, model, year and license plate number. This will help to ensure the security of the vehicle and prevent it from being towed away as an abandoned vehicle.
Speed Limits: The maximum speed limit in any Tripler parking lot is 5 mph. The speed limit on Tripler roads is 25 mph. During posted PT hours, it is 10 mph. These limits are radar-enforced. Violators are issued summons, which require appearance at the U.S. District Court.
Drive Carefully: Be alert for pedestrians and vehicle movements in parking areas.
