Changes to patient parking, drop off location at ACMC

Friday, October 14, 2022

Ongoing construction on Ashtabula County Medical Center’s new Patient Care Tower will create several changes for patients and visitors beginning on Monday, October 17.

Rogers Place will permanently close to traffic.

All access to parking in front of the hospital will be from Lake Avenue.

Additionally, patient drop-off/pick-up will be temporarily moved to under the cement canopy of the old main hospital entrance. Patients will continue to enter through the doors of the Medical Office Building (The Ashtabula Clinic). Vehicles will follow a one-way (south-to-north) traffic pattern to exit the patient drop-off/pick-up location.

A new patient and visitor parking area has been created in front of the old main hospital entrance where the garden was located. The garden is being incorporated into the landscaping of the new patient care tower.

“We know that construction often causes disruption and inconvenience. We appreciate the patience and understanding our patients and visitors have shown throughout the construction process,” said ACMC President and CEO Michael Habowski. “The hospital remains open 24/7/365 and all services are available during construction. For patient convenience, we also offer services such as lab services at our family health centers in Ashtabula, Conneaut, Geneva, Jefferson and Orwell; X-ray is available at the family health centers in Ashtabula, Conneaut and Jefferson; and ultrasound is also available at the family health center in Ashtabula.”

The new patient care tower will feature 55 private inpatient rooms, 5 new operating rooms, and 24 new emergency department rooms. It is the largest construction project in the history of Ashtabula County Medical Center.
