Whether you are visiting The Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia for a brief appointment, a day of testing, an extended stay or simply to offer your support as a visitor, we know you may have questions before you come. What should you bring? Where will you park? How can you prepare your child ahead of time? When are visiting hours? We want to make your experience with us as comfortable as possible.
Hospitalized children are more susceptible to infection. Due to this risk and the increase in upper respiratory infections during the winter, The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has put into effect a limited visitor policy from December 2013 – March 2014.
