Parking Information

Nepean Hospital has parking spaces available for patients, visitors and staff.

Parking facilities are operated and managed by Secure Parking Pty Ltd in conjunction with Nepean Hospital Car Parking Administration.

The multi-storey car park on the corner of Derby & Somerset Streets, Kingswood can be accessed from the roundabout entrance at the intersection of Somerset and Hargrave Streets, Kingswood. Temporary valet parking is in operation during busy periods. To contact valet parking call 4734 1575.

For appointments in West Block, patients and visitors may prefer to park in the visitor car park located outside West Block, entrance from Parker Street.

Emergency parking is available outside the Emergency Department, entrance from Derby Street.

Patients attending appointments in Cancer Care Centre can contact (02) 4734 3500 regarding parking arrangements.

The old Somerset Street car park has permanently closed for construction on the new hospital tower as part of the Nepean Redevelopment Stage 1.

From Wednesday 13 March, pedestrian and vehicle access to North Block will close. There are now new ways to access North Block, including the Aged Care and Rehabilitation Centre. Patients can be escorted by Nepean Hospital volunteer guides (in red shirts) or Patient Transport Service if assistance is required.

Until the new Barber Avenue multi-storey car park opens in mid-2019, please allow a little extra time for your journey to Nepean Hospital.

Two Hour (2P) time restricted parking exists on Derby Street (north side from the Hospital entrance to Somerset Street roundabout) and along the western side of Somerset Street (between Derby Street and the Great Western Highway).

Four Hour (4P) time restricted parking exists on Derby Street (southern side from the Hospital entrance to Somerset Street roundabout) and along the eastern side of Somerset Street, (from Derby Street to the Great Western Highway).

*Please note that the time restriction signage may vary time to time as they are subject to approved works zones as part of developments.

Marked parking bays also exist along Derby Street and Somerset Street (and some of the other surrounding residential streets near the Hospital) and drivers must only park within the marked bays.

Patient Transport Service is available to collect patients from any of the hospital's car parks. If required, patients can be assisted and escorted through the hospital to reach their appointment. This option is wheelchair accessible. To use this service please call before arrival or departure: 0447 763 561.
