Getting Around

We know navigating a hospital when you are concerned about your child’s health can be stressful. If you need help, don’t hesitate to ask any employee—you can spot us by our badges. We all consider it part of our jobs to help visitors with directions.

Inpatient family waiting areas

Inpatient family waiting areas are located in proximity to the unit where your child is staying.

Parents—it is common to put your own needs last while your child is in the hospital; however, it is important to take some time for yourself. Try to go for a walk, get a cup of coffee and take some time to rest so you can best support your child.
