Employee Parking

Upon receiving a DMC badge, every employee is assigned a parking location. This parking assignment must be used at all times. A DMC badge swipe is frequently required for entry to DMC Employee parking areas. Your badge is coded to your assigned parking area, and will not provide you access to any other parking area.

 In order to provide as much accommodation as possible for our patients and their visitors, employees are not allowed to pay for parking in areas reserved for patient/visitor parking. Employees found violating this policy are subject to discipline pursuant to DMC HR Tier 1 Policy. Parking assignments are predetermined; all exceptions must be approved by the Director of Parking and External Transportation and a DMC Executive Manager. Consideration is given to individuals with documented conditions.
