Mount Sinai Health System in New York City found itself at the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S. With thousands of cases throughout the system, Mount Sinai’s employees were working more shifts and longer hours, upending their normal commutes. And, as authorities advised that the risk of infection is amplified by being in close quarters with others, many workers who regularly commuted by mass transit instead drove to work in private vehicles.
Mount Sinai’s operations team partnered with Walker Consultants to secure additional employee parking options near multiple hospital and medical office sites in three NYC boroughs. Walker quickly contacted numerous parking operators to arrange nearby spaces for hundreds of employees.
Walker also assisted with Mount Sinai’s employee shuttle system by contracting additional full-sized coach buses that give workers more room to follow social distancing standards.
Walker’s role included updating informational documents, communicating with garage and shuttle operators, and reviewing parking invoices to ensure that billings adhered to agreed-upon terms. (Mount Sinai covered the cost of parking for staff.)
Walker Consultants thanks several NYC-area parking companies for their cooperation, including Champion Parking, Garage Management Corporation, GGMC Parking, Icon Parking, LAZ Parking, Little Man Parking, Manhattan Parking Group, Park It Management, and SP+ Corporation.
