Valet Parking

In 2011, we introduced free — that's right, free — valet parking for all patients and visitors to the hospital. It's simple: Enter onto 27th Street and pull up right up to the front entrance of the hospital. From there, our parking professionals will handle your car with care so that you don't have to search for parking or walk a long distance. When you're ready to leave, simply hand your ticket to an attendant and your car will be retrieved. There is no charge for this service and valets are not allowed to accept tips.

Other Parking Options

In addition, there are other free parking options to fit your needs, including:

  • Front hospital parking lot: Located on Chester Avenue between 26th and 27th streets
  • Two parking garages with more than 700 parking spaces: Entrances to both lots located on 28th Street, just north of Chester Avenue
