New Central Garage Opens at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center


Submitted by PeaceHealth

The Central Garage at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center’s main campus is opening on Monday, June 3. The new garage is an integral first step in the hospital’s $350 million expansion and creation of the Paulsen Pavilion. The Central Garage is a five-story structure with capacity for over 600 vehicles, 10 EV charging stations and 50 bikes.

We partnered with Seattle-based Abbott Construction for the build and are proud that 90% of the subcontractors were local, providing more than $16 million to Whatcom and Skagit based businesses. 

The Central Garage will provide free parking for visitors, patients, physicians, clinicians and caregivers accessing the hospital, Clocktower Building, St. Francis of Bellingham and PeaceHealth buildings. Users will access the garage from Squalicum Parkway and can enter the medical center through the East Tower entrance.

“The Central Garage is a significant step toward the Paulsen Pavilion groundbreaking and increasing our capacity to serve the community.” Chuck Prosper, Chief Executive NW Network.

Scenic screens were installed on the Central Garage to and reduce the impact of lighting for nearby neighbors.
