Drive-up access to Virginia Mason's Emergency Department along Spring Street will be altered from Sept. 20 through Oct. 5 due to construction work.

If you need to access VM's Emergency Department during this time, be aware that:

  • VM will have a police officer on site to keep flow moving, Monday through Friday until 3 p.m. After these hours and on weekends, security personnel will be there to direct traffic.
     
  • VM staff will be ready to assist patients needing care from our Emergency Department at drop-off.
     
  • The usual amount of Emergency Department parking will be available, and VM will provide parking for family members at a nearby lot.
     
  • Access to the Emergency Department by patients and ambulance drivers will be via Terry Avenue from Madison Street. The Emergency Department entrance will be clearly marked and visible.
     
  • Access for walk-in patients will be along the sidewalk near the Inn at Virginia Mason.

Steps have been taken to reduce the amount of congestion, but it's still possible drop-offs could be a little slower than usual. We apologize for any delays as we work to reopen Spring Street as soon as possible.
