Visiting and Parking

Please note that Visiting Restrictions are in Effect

The Deep River and District Hospital (DRDH) continues to actively respond to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic and is taking all precautionary measures recommended by Public Health. To proactively protect individuals from contracting or spreading COVID-19, the Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario has provided direction to restrict all but essential visitors from vulnerable populations. As such, visitors and volunteers are not permitted at the Deep River and District Hospital and the Four Seasons Lodge Long-Term Care Home at this time.


If a resident or patient is receiving end-of-life care, arrangements may be made for a single, designated  'essential visitor' on a case by case basis.

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
