|Parking Reminder: Illegitimate Parking at Lattimore Medical Office Building Lot|
|Monday, June 27 2011|
We’ve recently learned that a number of URMC employees are parking at a nearby medical office building, located at 125 Lattimore Road, and walking to the Medical Center. Out of respect to the property owner, we would like to remind faculty, staff and students that they cannot park at this location and must instead park their cars in a designated URMC lot.
We have been informed that warning stickers will be placed on vehicles illegitimately parking in this lot; if the stickers are ignored, the vehicles could be towed.
This is a natural opportunity to remind staff to also refrain from illegitimately parking on any side streets or at any businesses surrounding URMC. We frequently hear that these extra vehicles are inconveniencing neighbors – by taking up their limited parking space, and sometimes even blocking their trash receptacles from weekly pick-ups. Similarly, area businesses report that our staff sometimes park in their lots, occupying spaces that these businesses reserve for their customers.
In order to maintain a good rapport with our neighbors and local business owners, our Parking staff frequently survey side streets, scanning license plates and sending letters to URMC staff who park on these streets. Out of respect to our neighbors, we ask that you help us as we continue to encourage staff to purchase a URMC parking permit and park in a URMC lot.

As health care reform challenges us to expand health insurance to cover 30 million more Americans – and improve the quality and effectiveness of that care, all on a smaller dime – traditional industry arrangements will only go so far. We sat down with URMC Chief Operating Officer Peter Robinson to make sense of how reform’s new financial incentives are rewriting relationships among players.
