TUBA CITY, Ariz. - There have been many changes to parking for patients, visitors and staff at the Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation (TCRHCC) campus. This is due to construction of the Modular Medical Office Building (MMOB) and General Service Building which are expected to continue through the winter.

The 33,700-square-foot, three-story MMOB will be located next to the hospital. The first floor will house an expanded area for our Comprehensive Diabetes Program, Outpatient Pharmacy with a convenient drive-up window, and Patient Registration in the main lobby. On the second floor, there will be an expanded footage for the current Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Walk In clinics. The Obstetrical and Gynecological Clinic (Women's Clinic) and Pediatric Clinic will be housed on the third floor.

Construction on the General Service Building began last week. As a result, a portion of Parking Lot 6 has a limited number of parking spaces as it is occupied by the General Service Building construction site. Infrastructure construction has also temporarily closed the road on Pine Street between Cedar Avenue and Birch Avenue. A construction fence has been posted from just south of Parking Lot 6.

Parking lots are still open, however, patients and visitors may find it difficult to find a parking space due to construction throughout the fall and winter period.

The following is a list of patient and visitor parking lots and locations:

• Parking Lot 1 - Southwest of the main hospital entrance

• Parking Lot 2 - East of the MMOB Construction site; the hospital entrance south of the main hospital is open between the main hospital and MMOB construction site Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Parking Lot 3 - East of the MMOB Construction site; the hospital entrance south of the main hospital is open between the main hospital and MMOB construction site Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

• Parking Lot 4 - Northwest of the main hospital entrance

• Parking Lot 5 - North of the main hospital entrance

• Parking Lot 11 - East of the main hospital, between the Refill Pharmacy and Diabetes Prevention Program trailers.

The following are TCRHCC staff parking lots:

• Parking Lot 6 - South of the MMOB construction site

• Parking Lot 7 - Southwest end of the Administration Building (TC-167)

• Parking Lot 8 - Northwest end of the Administration Building (TC-167)

• Parking Lot 9 - Northeast end of the main hospital building (TC-2000)

• Parking Lot 10 - East end of the main hospital building (TC-2000)

TCRHCC is committed to the safety of patients and visitors. To ensure that patients and visitors are safe, there is a free shuttle service to and from the parking lots on campus. The shuttle provides complimentary pick-up and drop-off for patients and visitors who are unable to walk more than 50 feet, not familiar with the Tuba City hospital campus and parking lots, or need additional help and assistance to and from the hospital.

By providing the shuttle service, TCRHCC hopes to create a positive experience and help increase overall safety and satisfaction.

All patients and visitors who will be visiting TCRHCC and think they may need the shuttle service are encouraged to call (928) 283-2842.
