The SCI Unit at MetroHealth moved to the Old Brooklyn Campus as of October 1, 2012. Old Brooklyn Campus is on the left and the Parking Garage is on the right. If you drive a traditional vehicle the parking garage is fine. If you drive a FULL-SIZE VEHICLE, the parking garage roof is less than 84 inches. A full-size van or a truck with a lift cap WILL NOT FIT in the parking garage. There is an open lot at the back of the facility, where every spot has a Permit Parking Only sign. We have made arrangements with Security to park FULL-SIZED VEHICLES in this lot. There is a nominal fee for garage parking.
