To the editor,

Did Altru look at a parking garage for the new hospital? I have seen the new plans for Altru's new hospital both online and at the Ralph a few weeks ago.

My question is, why not build a parking garage? Or two? Current parking means that all personnel who visit or work at Altru must walk to get into the facility no matter the weather. While Altru does an OK job clearing their parking lots of snow, there are years like this year they run out of places to put the snow.

Finally, with the new hospital system, employees have to park and walk a few blocks to get to work. Why not build a parking garage that will shorten the distance that visitors have to walk and thus freeing up current parking spots make it easier and safer for employees to get to work?
