Valet Parking

Effective July 1, 2021, valet services at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center main campus locations (James, Ross, University Hospital, Brain and Spine) will transition to a “no tip” service, which means that valet attendants will not accept tips from customers. The daily valet rate will increase from $8 to $10. As part of the transition, valet enhancements are being made at the medical center main campus locations as well as Martha Morehouse Outpatient Care to enhance the customer experience, including the acceptance of credit cards, Apple Pay and Google Pay as well as ticketless valet check-in options.

Disability Parking
Handicapped accessible parking is available next to the building and in all garages on the medical center campus. Additional parking is located in the SAFEAUTO Garage at 1585 Westpark St. It is connected to the Medical Center by a second-floor covered walkway. For those with mobility challenges, please drop off at Davis Outpatient Care entrance (1640 Cannon Dr. Columbus, OH 43210) on Medical Center Drive before parking your vehicle.
