Roper Hospital
Effective June 10, 2019 Roper Hospital implemented new control gates for parking in the Lucas Street Garage.

These new gates will enable us to better regulate who can access our parking areas and ensure parking spaces for our patients, visitors and teammates.

Clergy members who are visiting patients at Roper Hospital will pull a ticket and have it validated at Valet parking, which is near the main entrance of the hospital on Calhoun Street, from 6 a.m.- 9 p.m. If you are here after 9 p.m., you will need to get a validation sticker from the staff on the unit you are visiting.

Ashley Rutledge Parking Garage - entrances on Ashley and Rutledge Avenues
Courtenay Drive Parking Garage at Ashley River Tower (ART) - entrance just off of Courtenay Drive and Charleston Center Drives
