Parking

If you are a patient of the Cancer Centre of Southeastern Ontario at the Kingston General Hospital site, you will receive a pink parking permit at or before your first appointment. This pink permit will allow you to take advantage of special discounted parking rates and use reserved cancer parking spaces. If you forget your pink permit or did not receive one, ask a member of your care team for a new one.
