The current parking lot at the CARD Clinic is a huge safety concern for our patients as well as our employees. The parking lot is sloped in such a way that, in the winter time, it is difficult to walk up it. This concerns the staff at CARD, as we have patients who don't move well, carry oxygen bottles, and are advanced in age.
Not only is the parking lot poorly sloped, it is very small with only eight (8) parking spots. There are designated handicapped spots, but the lot is so small, it really makes no difference and it's easier for those with handicapped accessible needs to park on the street.
The design of the current parking lot creates a drainage issue for the basement of the facility, and many times there is water that enters the basement where there are offices, a server room, and a refrigeration room where tissue samples are stored.
CARD has had the new design drawn up by an engineer at a cost of $16,000 which was paid for a year ago through fundraising and grant money. The estimated cost of the new parking lot is $242,000. The plans are currently being worked on to add two or three more parking spots, and once completed, CARD will be getting two official quotes from local contractors.
$242,000 is not an easy number to achieve, but we are dedicated and determined to get this done for our patients who have been through so much already. We will continue fundraising efforts and will apply for grants in a mission to get this project completed.
