Parkview Place will close July 7 for up to 24 months due to construction of the new north campus tower on the old Jewish Hospital site.
Patients receiving care in the Center for Advanced Medicine will not be able to use Parkview to access the CAM and the North Garage. CAM traffic will be redirected to the intersection of Forest Park and Euclid avenues.
The following steps are being taken to minimize the impact of the Parkview closure on patients and their families:
• The median on Euclid east of the CAM will be removed to allow for two left-turn exit lanes from Euclid onto Forest Park.
• The traffic signals at the Forest Park-Euclid Avenue intersection will be adjusted to optimize traffic flow.
• Traffic control officers will be stationed at the CAM drop-off area and North Garage entrance/exit.
• The CAM valet service has been enhanced to expedite valet parking and car retrieval.
• Certain CAM patient populations with long treatment times (for example, those receiving chemotherapy and being treated in radiation oncology) may be redirected to the Forest Park Garage.
• Delivery truck traffic to the loading dock at St. Louis Children’s Hospital will be prohibited from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
SLCH, Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine are coordinating their efforts to minimize disruption to patients and visitors.
