Eight car-parking spaces have been set aside for use by patients of Dubbo Hospital's new $6.5 million renal unit.
They run along the eastern side of the Talbragar Building and are marked "renal".
The new unit, built above the extended day surgery unit in the Talbragar Building, is set to accept its first patients on December 9.
Renal nurse manager Gail O'Brien reports of 38 people currently having dialysis at Dubbo Hospital each week.
She is asking visitors to the hospital not to park in the designated renal unit car-parking spaces and informing them that dialysis patients will be given car stickers acknowledging their parking rights.
"There are eight specified spaces for dialysis patients and nobody else is allowed to park there," Ms O'Brien said.
"We'll know if they are not dialysis patients."
Ms O'Brien will greet the first patients of the new unit in the car park.
"I'll be excited for them," she said after an Aboriginal smoking ceremony in the new unit this week.

The unit has been completed under the state government's $150 million stage three and four redevelopment of the hospital.
Demolition of the old renal unit early next year will allow for the start of construction of the Western Cancer Centre, funded with $25 million from the federal government and $10 million from the state government.
