MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The kick-off of WVU’s football season this weekend means that patient and visitor parking on the campus of WVU Medicine J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, including WVU Medicine Children’s, the WVU Cancer Institute Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, the WVU Medicine Jon Michael Moore Trauma Center, the Physician Office Center, and the WVU Eye Institute, will be impacted.

To ensure access to the hospital on football game day, the Gold South Parking Garage behind the hospital has been reserved for visitors and patients. The garage is adjacent to the Trauma Center and the Cancer Center. Access to the hospital is through the Trauma Center (Emergency Department). Patient pick up and drop off is also at this location.

Patients and visitors will need a Game Day Pass to enter the hospital. Hospital security will distribute passes to patients and visitors at a checkpoint near the parking garage.

Patients and visitors may park in the garage beginning at 3 p.m. the afternoon prior to game day. All vehicles parked in the Gold South Parking Garage must be removed before 8 a.m. on Monday.

Any vehicles remaining in the parking lots between the hospital and Milan Puskar Stadium after midnight prior to game day will be towed to the Emergency Department parking lot.

For urgent visits, patients and visitors should park in the Parking Garage and enter through the Emergency Department. For more information on urgent visits or if you have problems with access, call hospital security at 304-598-4444.
