Parking Information for Storm Eye Institute
When visiting the Storm Eye Institute, you can park at the Ashley-Rutledge Garage (6'8" clearance) which has entrances on both Ashley Avenue and Rutledge Avenue. Self-parking for outpatients is $.75 per half hour, up to a maximum of $3. If parking exceeds two hours, all charges over $3 will be paid by the hospital; but to receive this courtesy the ticket must be validated. Check with reception staff in the area where you receive your care.
Valet parking is available for a fee of $8 (will increase to $10 effective July 1) at the entrance of the Rutledge Tower for patients and families/visitors of patients. Drive your vehicle to the main entrance of the building for valet service, Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., as available.
The MUSC Health Patient Shuttle system provides a free and convenient way for patients to travel between buildings on our downtown campus.
Mobility-Impaired Patients/Handicapped Parking for Children’s Hospital
Handicap parking is also available at the Rutledge Tower Surface Lot. For wheelchair assistance, use a courtesy phone near an elevator or call 843-876-0101 (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday) from your cell phone. South Carolina State law provides that there is no charge for parking in metered or timed facilities for vehicles which display a handicap plate or placard and which are driven by or transporting the handicapped individual. If the handicapped individual is not in the vehicle, the posted parking rate applies.
Inpatients' families and visitors may park for $.75 per half hour. The maximum daily rate (up to 24 hours) is $6. To receive the reduced rate, the visitor should provide the patient's last name and room number to the cashier when exiting the parking facility. The cashier will issue a receipt. This will allow unlimited additional exits during the 24-hour period at no charge.
