South Shore Medical Center's Quincy office is located in the heart of Quincy Center. We’re proud to be a part of this area’s incredible transformation. Due to ongoing construction around 1495 Hancock Street, it may take longer to park and get to the practice for your appointment.
Here are our recommendations for patients with appointments at SSMC Quincy:
Take public transportation if possible. Our office is a five- to 10-minute walk from Quincy Center station, which is served by the MBTA's Red Line, Commuter Rail, and several bus lines.
Arrive early for your appointment. Please allow ample time to park and check in. We recommend that patients who are driving plan to arrive 15 minutes before their scheduled arrival time in order to find parking.
Need assistance upon arrival? Patients who need assistance upon arrival can call 781-624-1968 and a member of our team will assist you.
Know the parking options. The City of Quincy's Hancock Garage (26 Cottage Avenue in your GPS) is just a three-minute walk from the Medical Center. Parking in this garage comes with a small fee. There is limited street parking in the area as well.
When exiting the garage. Please exit towards the Cottage Avenue entrance located near the elevator. This will lead you to the courtyard behind the Fours restaurant. Walk straight ahead towards the path and you will see Alba restaurant directly in front of you. Take a left onto Cottage Avenue and walk straight. South Shore Health is directly across Hancock Street.
