In March of this year, the BC Foot and Ankle Clinic relocated to St. Paul’s hospital from St. Vincent’s Hospital. The Clinic is now located in the Outpatient Department on the 3rd Floor of the North Wing at St. Paul’s Hospital.
It is easiest to access the Clinic through the Comox Street entrance, which is on the North side of St. Paul’s Hospital. There is a patient drop-off zone directly in front of the Comox St. entrance.
It is difficult to find parking downtown, whether is it on the side streets or in pay parking lots. There is metered parking on the side streets near the hospital.
Street meter rates are $2.00/ hour and only permit a maximum stay of 2 hours. The map below shows some of the pay parking lots near the hospital. The Century Plaza Hotel, Wall Centre & the general parking lot at St. Paul’s Hospital collect parking fees as you leave. For all other lots, you must pay in advance for parking. It may be less stressful for you to choose a parking lot that collects fees when you leave as many appointments take longer than anticipated.
