Parking restrictions

When planning your Vital Records visit, please be advised that the parking availability at Department of Health has recently been significantly restricted. Before 3 PM, visitors are asked to park at the metered spaces close to the building or on the sides or rear of the Chapin Building at 50 Orms St. (please leave the visitor spaces and handicap spots open). After 3 PM. the gates to the parking lot will be open and visitors can park free of charge in the surface lots.

The Department of Health recognizes that this policy change creates a significant inconvenience on our customers. We are working closely with the Department of Administration and the City of Providence to identify free, convenient parking over the next several months.
