Drop Off / Pick Up Zones at Services de santé de Chapleau Health Services Entrances

SSCHS is committed to ensuring our services are safe and accessible to everyone requiring our assistance. SSCHS provides two areas where patients can be dropped off or picked up. These zones are located at the main entrance of the hospital for patients/ visitors and the side entrance for emergencies.

For the safety of those picking up or dropping off patients/visitors, parking in the front of the main hospital entrance and the side emergency entrance is strictly prohibited. Patients/ visitors may be dropped off or picked up but then the driver must park in the visitor parking lot.
