Caregiver Space at the Main Hospital

In your child’s room

If your child needs to stay overnight at our Main Hospital on the Philadelphia Campus, we encourage one parent or guardian to stay with your child in their room. Cots, sleep chairs and sleep sofas are available for your comfort. In general, in the intensive care unit (ICU) areas, it is not possible for an extra bed to be in the room.

Caregiver sleep rooms

There are a limited number of sleep rooms throughout the hospital, which are available at no cost to families on a one-night-at-a-time basis. Priority is given to parents with children in the ICUs or parents who are not able to sleep bedside.

You may sign up for these rooms in the Connelly Resource Center for Families, located on the 8th floor of the Main Hospital. Please sign up by 12 noon each day, so Family Relations coordinators can assign the rooms in the afternoon.

If you are assigned a room, you will be given information about check-in and check-out times. Because so many families need to use these rooms, we try to take into consideration the medical status of the child and each family's individual situation. If you are not assigned a room for the evening, staff will help you identify other areas to sleep in the hospital or assist with information about various hotels in the area.

Our Main Hospital is like a small town, complete with resources to meet many of your family’s needs while your child is hospitalized – from food to banking, hotels, resource centers and so much more!
