Patient parking changes as St. Francis Cancer Center expansion begins

Patient parking is poised to change temporarily to make way for expanding the St. Francis Cancer Center at 8111 S. Emerson Ave.

Beginning this week, patients with appointments will receive priority parking in a designated area monitoring by an attendant from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. That area is near the center’s main entry (Entrance No. 4).

“Patients with frequent or recurring appointments will receive a parking pass from the Cancer Center allowing them unrestricted access to patient parking spaces,” said Kent Brumbaugh, executive director of St. Francis Cancer Services. “Construction will continue through early 2012 and parking will be limited during that time.”

Site preparations are set to get under way for a $34 million expansion of the center. The facility is adding 70,000-square feet – more than quadrupling its current size – providing more services to patients in central Indiana.

Patients and caregivers having questions about parking can call (317) 783-8918.
