Mackenzie Health Chooses Park Assist’s M4 Parking Guidance System
CHESHIRE, CT – September 16th, 2020 – Park Assist® has been awarded the Parking Guidance System (PGS) contract for Mackenzie Health’s new Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. Cortellucci Vaughan Hospital, the first smart hospital in Canada, will provide state-of-the-art health care, utilizing smart technology systems and devices, while increasing access to care for the Southwest York Region community and beyond. With a keen focus on technology and innovation, Mackenzie Health will incorporate Park Assist’s advanced-tech, camera-based M4 PGS in its expanding parking facility to enhance its patients’ experience and bring next-generation guidance to the garage.
As Mackenzie Health prepares to open its second hospital site, it has chosen to implement Park Assist’s camera-based M4 smart-sensor system and wayfinding signage to optimize parking in the facility, increase patient and guest satisfaction, and reduce parking search times. This system will also come equipped with Park Assist’s new software platform, INX™, helping to increase control of the garage and the Parking Guidance System.
When parkers enter the garage, they will be greeted with digital Wayfinding signage, ensuring they experience the highest level of guidance from the start. Continuously updated with information collected from the M4 sensors, these signs provide highly accurate and detailed data to help parkers make the most informed decisions. Park Assist’s digital signs indicate which levels of the facility have available parking spaces as well as how many spots are available on each level. From there, internal directional signs guide parkers through the facility to the appropriate parking area.
Park Assist’s camera-based M4 smart-sensor system then completes the wayfinding loop. The bright, color-coded LED lights in the smart-sensors help parkers navigate the garage by indicating which spaces are available and which are occupied using red and green lights. This not only makes the parking process easier and more efficient for the end-user, but it helps to decrease traffic congestion and reduce the amount of time patients and visitors spend searching for parking.
“Park Assist is pleased to continue bringing an unprecedented patient experience to the Mackenzie healthcare team, alongside our Ontario-based partner, Precise Parklink.” Said Robert Wishart, Regional Account Manager, Northeast.
Working with local partner, Precise Parklink, Park Assist’s installation began in March and is set to go live this fall.
