At Joondalup Health Campus we are committed to continuing to grow with our community to provide excellent health care as the major hospital for Perth’s northern corridor, which is one of the fastest growing regions of Australia.
We are excited to have the JHC Development Stage 2 project underway which will see a significant and much-welcomed development of the campus.
We are now starting a new stage of construction which will mean a significant change for public parking arrangements. When finished, this will provide hundreds of additional public car bays.
Works are commencing early October 2021 and continuing through to September 2022.
Whilst every effort will be made to minimise unavoidable disruption as we undertake construction of the new multi-storey public car park, you should allow extra time to find parking when visiting hospital during this period.
The arrangements we are putting in place during construction need to balance access and availability of parking for visitors and patients, with site access and construction needs for the $256.7 million expansion project.
Please note that at all times during the construction program you will be able to drive into JHC to access the drop off and pick up locations for:
- emergency department
- public hospital main reception
- private hospital main reception
- discharge lounge
- patient equipment centre
- after hours GP clinic.
Where to park during October/November 2021
During October/November 2021, JHC will continue to provide on-site visitor and patient parking in the current four main public car parking areas and you can enter the hospital campus from any of these locations. Entry doors to the campus are only closed during any COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
All four public parking areas contain some dedicated bays for drivers with ACROD permits. These car parks are:
- P1 car park - Pay as you leave ticket parking (enter via Shenton Ave).
- P4 car park - Pay and display ticket parking (maximum five hour stay – enter via Regents Park Road).
- P9 car park – Pay and display ticket parking (enter via Lakeside Drive).
- P12 car park– Pay and display ticket parking (enter via Shenton Ave, or can be accessed from entering in from Lakeside Drive and driving through the P9 car park).
A number of convenient 30 minute drop-off and pick-up bays will remain available in front of the Emergency Department (P11 car park) and Joondalup Private Hospital (P12 car park).
During these months there will be a temporary change in the location of the marked ACROD bays in P1 car park, although these 17 bays will still be near the main front entrance of the public hospital.
You will start to see Multiplex Constructions Pty Ltd fencing off areas around the designated construction site – but you will still be able to enter and park in the P1 car park.
At all times during construction the walking path from the CAT bus stop on Shenton Avenue along the west side of the P1 car park down to the main entrance will remain open.
One footpath located closest to the hospital buildings will remain open for use to enable safe movement from the main public hospital reception, around the emergency department and private hospital entrances.
Please review our available hospital site maps for the most up to date information and guidance when you are planning your visit. We thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the stages of this significant development.
Where to park from early December 2021 until September 2022
From early December 2021, there will be signage in place to direct visitors and patients to park in the expanded public P9 car park area.
This ‘pay and display ticket’ car park capacity in car park P9 will be increased to have 305 public parking bays available for use, including four ACROD bays.
Easy access to the P9 car park will be via Lakeside Drive to minimise any queueing or congestion at the Shenton Avenue entrance. You can also continue through the P7 car park around to the P12 parking area which is located out the front of the Joondalup Private Hospital.
In the P12 car park there are just over a hundred ‘pay and display ticket’ parking bays, a patient drop off and pick up area, some convenient 30 minute parking and several ACROD parking bays.
The Shenton Avenue entrance will have upgraded signage to direct you as you drive in, however please be aware that this entrance will at times be used by trucks entering and exiting the Multiplex construction area.
The car park P4 ‘pay and display ticket’ public car park can be accessed via Regents Park Road and contains 54 general parking bays and five ACROD bays. The entrances to the Mental Health Unit, Wanneroo Wing in the hospital and the COVID Clinic are adjacent to this car park. Also located nearby are the public dental and community health buildings.
From early December there will be 20 ACROD bays available in the corner of the P1 car park, near the main front entrance of the public hospital.
We advise JHC patients and visitors to plan your visit ahead of time, review the current hospital parking maps and guidelines to make the visit go as smoothly as possible, particularly during peak periods.
Shuttle bus available from December
To assist JHC patients and visitors during this stage of construction we will have a free shuttle bus service in place from early December 2021 to provide safe, convenient transport support to people who wish to use this option.
There will be several shuttle bus stops located in the P9 public car park, please look for the signage for the pick up and drop off locations and timings of the service runs.
The shuttle bus will provide transport around a circuit taking in the drop off and pick up locations for the main public hospital entrance, the emergency department and the entrance to the private hospital.
Details about the operating days and times for the free shuttle bus service will be advised soon.
