The usually crowded multi-storey parking facility at Hamad General Hospital (HGH) was almost empty yesterday as many visitors and staff were stopped from parking their cars there.

The parking lot was restricted to only patients with an appointment at the outpatient clinics at HGH, it has been learnt.

Security guards at the main gate of the hospital were seen stopping every vehicle and directing visitors with an OPD appointment to the multi-storey parking. “Usually we face much difficulty in parking the vehicle before getting into the hospital. But when we went in the morning the security guards at the gate checked the appointment slip and allowed us to park in the multi-storey facility,” a visitor told this daily yesterday.

A visit to the parking lot by The Peninsula around 9am yesterday confirmed that there were only a few cars parked there.

A security guard told this daily that since 6am yesterday, only patients and their companions were allowed to park at the facility. Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) staff were also not allowed to park there. HMC officials were not available for comments.
