Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
Dress your child in loose-fitting, two-piece clothing such as sweats. If you wish, you may bring your child to the center in pajamas.
Allow adequate time for travel and parking. Arriving late may cause delays in the surgery schedule for your child, and his or her procedure may need to be rescheduled for another day.
Park in the Penn Garage, and bring your parking ticket to be validated when you check in to receive a discounted parking rate for the first 24 hours after arrival to the hospital.
The nursing staff will check your child’s height, weight and vital signs, and will review preoperative information and consents.
A member of the Anesthesia Team will speak with you.
One parent must remain with your child at all times. Parents of children admitted for diagnostic procedures will be given specific information about the procedure being performed.
After you have met with the health care team members, you and your child may visit the playroom until your child’s surgeon is ready.
