Employees who park in this garage should park in the new Orchard Street Garage, scheduled to open the day before. The sky bridge to the new garage will not be open; employees will need to access the hospital at street level. Patients and visitors who normally park in the Orchard Street Garage will be directed to park in the George Street Garage.
