Additional Offices in the OR Area

Anesthesiology also has an administrative office, room 2807, in the University Hospital, near the OR suite.


There are several parking lots and garages on University Avenue convenient to our offices, as well as some 2-hour meters and unmetered spots on the street.  There are two Medical Center parking garages.  If you are a patient or visiting a patient, you can park in the Lee St. garage and your parking can be validated in the lobby of the main hospital.  If the Department of Anesthesiology has agreed to validate your parking, you must park in the Eleventh St. garage. From that location, you can easily reach the administrative offices by walking along Main/University Avenue or the hospital offices by walking through the Lee St. garage to the hospital.
