More Helpful Information for Your Child's Surgical Visit

In addition to questions about your child’s surgery, you may have questions about some of the logistics about your child’s visit to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital & Health Network, particularly if their surgery requires an overnight visit.


Valet parking is available for $3 at the 5th Street garage and at the main hospital entrance on MLK Jr. Way. Parking is available anywhere on the campus designated as visitor parking. If you park at the Baker Center, please bring your ticket with you for validation. (Validation is not available for the Jackson Hall or Kaiser Permanente parking facilities.)

Where Should I Stay?

You are welcome to stay overnight with your child. A chair bed with linens is available for one adult to sleep at their child's bedside in the medical-surgical units. Kitchens and showers are also available. Limited family housing may be available at MultiCare's Tree House for families with children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU). The NICU or PICU social workers can assist in making these arrangements.
