Downstate Depot - Central Receiving
Other Helpful Information
- Daily deliveries are made usually on same day but within next business day to all offices within the University Hospital, BSB, and the Education Bldg. Other off site buildings are delivered to on a scheduled basis; call Receiving for off-site schedules.
- Express & perishable shipments are given priority for delivery to departments when they arrive. However, if your department is expecting an emergency shipment, please alert the Receiving Manager in advance for any needed special delivery or pick-up arrangements.
- Emergency deliveries after business hours (evenings, on weekends or holidays) are delivered to the University Police main office at the 445 Lenox Road lobby. Please advise University Police at Ext. 2626 in advance with instructions if you expect an emergency off-hours delivery and make special arrangements in advance with the hospital administrator on duty for any perishable items requiring refrigeration.
- Storage: The Receiving staging area is not a storage area. User departments must plan in advance for adequate departmental storage space when large shipments are ordered. If your department requires any special storage arrangements, please make advance arrangements and advise the Receiving management.
