New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC) has become the first hospital in the USA to install a complete parking guidance system.
NHRMC is the largest provider of health care services in southeastern North Carolina and with nearly 7,000 staff it is also the largest employer in the region.
“Hospitals need to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Dale Fowler, President of INDECT USA. “Staff come and go at irregular hours, which impacts the daily flow of traffic within the garage. NHRMC wanted to make the parking experience as easy and stress free as possible.”
The employee parking garage was recently completed as part of NHRMC’s initiative to create more space for visitors and patients. The new garage houses 580 undercover spaces and an additional 145 open air spaces on the rooftop.
