Parking & Checking In

For all admissions and testing, sign-in at the hospital's Information Desk. A volunteer at the desk will then direct the patient to wait in the lobby until an Admitting Clerk calls his or her name.

Public parking is available in the Children's Hospital Parking Garage C (Clinch Ave. between 21st and 22nd Streets) for all visits to Children’s Hospital, Koppel Plaza and Children’s Hospital Medical Office Building. For patient visits to the Scott M. Niswonger Emergency Department and Outpatient Clinics, park in Parking Garage A. For surgeries, park in Parking Garage B.

Remember to bring in the ticket from the parking garage. For outpatient services, families will be issued a one-day pass for free parking; for overnight stays, families will be issued one weekly pass for free parking. Weekly passes will be reissued for families of children hospitalized longer than one week.

An Admitting Clerk will take all necessary information and will direct the patient on where to go next, whether to a patient room or to another department for testing.
