Smart industry solutions leader NuPark is bringing integrated parking management technology to University of Florida Health Shands Hospital. The hospital is using NuPark’s permit and enforcement cloud-based solutions to collect real-time parking data that will work with the medical facility’s existing systems. The integrated system provides the hospital with better visibility and control of parking operations to ensure that parking is allocated appropriately for patients, visitors and staff.

“In our efforts to create the best possible patient experience, we are working with NuPark to incorporate its parking management technology into our daily operations,” said George Richardson, manager of transportation and parking at UF Health Shands Hospital.

UF Health Shands is installing fixed license plate recognition, or LPR, cameras in its facilities to monitor and control parking access. Using NuPark’s platform, combined with handheld and mobile LPR enforcement devices that integrate data into a single system, UF Health will obtain a comprehensive, real-time view of its parking operations. This automated system will help UF Health Shands Hospital ensure that patient parking spaces are used appropriately to support patient access to its health care facilities. It will also help manage faculty, staff and visitor parking.

“This project is setting a great example of how to use fixed and mobile LPR together for health care facilities to address challenges like demand management and accommodating growth,” said Pete Messman, Regional Sales Director Southeast at NuPark. “Ultimately, the use of the data collected will allow them to provision parking more effectively, particularly for visitors.”

UF Health Shands Hospital is part of the University of Florida Health system, the most comprehensive academic health center in the Southeast that includes multiple health colleges, research institutes, teaching hospitals, specialty hospitals, and physical medical practices.
