A hospital’s parking garages or lots are often a major source of revenue; however, these areas also account for a substantial portion of reported crimes.
In an International Association for Healthcare & Safety hospital crime survey some 15% of sexual assaults, 31% of robberies, 39% of burglaries, and 54% of vandalism were reported to have occurred in parking lots or structures. Some 87% of reported auto thefts also occurred in parking facilities (with most of the rest taking place on public streets or elsewhere on hospital grounds).
The survey also reported that employees were the victims of the above crimes in hospital parking facilities between 40% and 60% of the time.
Patients and their care-givers do not need the additional stress of parking safety and security concerns during already trying circumstances.
Robotic Parking Systems can help ease the woes of hospital parking facility crimes. This patented automated parking system is designed to provide the greatest possible degree of safety and security; and eliminate hazards to individuals, their belongings and vehicle.
Reduce Exposure to Personal Injury
Robotic Parking Systems reduce the exposure to personal injury. There is no need to walk to and from a car through rows and levels of parking decks. With an automated parking structure, just drive into an entry station and leave the car to be picked up by computerized machinery. When it’s time to leave, return to a well-lit lobby where the car is quickly delivered to a ground floor exit station. This increases safety and reduces exposure to personal injury.
Reduce Damage and Dents
Even the vehicles themselves benefit from Robotic Parking Systems. Cars are transported free of touch on individual pallets. Typical parking damage, such as dents and dings are eliminated. And, as an additional benefit, this helps keep insurance costs down for the automatic parking system.
Reduce Theft and Vandalism
Robotic Parking Systems reduce theft and vandalism. Cars are stored in a fully enclosed structure; and since no one is allowed access to the inside of the garage, vehicles and belongings are 100% secure.
Users Rate the Robotic Parking System
Robotic Parking Systems can give hospitals the edge in ensuring the safety and security of users and their vehicles. In a recent survey:
- 100% of our users rated the security of their cars and belongings as very good to exceptional.
- 86% of our users feel very good to exceptional about their personal safety when entering and exiting the garage.
