Valet Parking Service at West Haven
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve parking congestion at the West Haven Campus, we are pleased to announce that a valet parking service for patients is now available. The free service will be available 6:30am to 6pm weekdays (excluding federal holidays).
The valet station will be located in the circle area in front of the Building 2 main entrance (revolving door). Patients who wish to use the service should indicate this to the valet attendant, present your vehicle keys, receive a claim ticket and proceed inside for your medical appointment. The attendant will need to verify that you are a VA Connecticut patient. Please be prepared to provide the attendant with either your appointment letter or patient identification card.
To retrieve your vehicle, turn in your claim ticket to the valet station. Your vehicle will be returned to you in the area where it was dropped off. Vehicle keys not picked up during normal valet hours can be claimed at the Triage Desk located on the first floor of Building 2 (through the sliding glass doors adjacent to the main lobby).
Additional off-site parking for employees is available at the Polish American Club located on West Spring Street. The campus parking shuttle will pick-up and drop-off at this location as part of the shuttle route.
