Parking at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center

The Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center consists of our Wade Park Medical Center with several satellite locations around Northeast Ohio called Multi-Specialty Outpatient Clinics.

Parking rules vary depending on which facility you are visiting. Patients receiving care at a medical facility may park in any non restrictive area. Signs are posted in those spaces where parking is not allowed.

You can usually find convenient parking in the lot in front of or next to the Multi-Specialty Outpatient Clinic.

Handicap Parking

Several parking spaces are reserved for the handicap. These spaces are closest to entrances or accessible entry points like ramps or elevators.

Please display your valid, non-expired handicap placard in your windshield or have handicap license plates. Failure may result in big fines or even being towed!
