Visiting and Parking


Please note that a COVID-19 outbreak has been declared on the medical floor by Public Helath. As such, medical in-patient general visition is on hold at this time. Essential Caregivers only may visit. Essential Caregivers are restricted to two per patient on the medical floor. They must check in with Nursing staff before visiting and are to use appropriate PPE and precautions when visiting. Thank you for your cooperation.

With the goal of preserving our services and ability to provide exceptional care, the Deep River and District Hospital has implemented paid parking, effective November 1, 2017.


The Hospital uses a ‘Pay-by-Plate’ system, which means individuals enter their license plate number to pay for parking when they arrive at one of two parking kiosks located inside the building. Once their license plate is registered and the fee is paid (by coin or credit card), the individual does not need to return to their car. All registered license plates are maintained by a web application which provides live information for enforcement purposes. Failing to pay for parking may result in being ticketed or being towed at the owner’s expense. The rates for parking are as follows:

  • $5 for 24 hours
  • $30 for a 30 day pass
  • $300 for a 365 day pass

 Note: for 30 and 365 day passes, two license plates may be registered
