Patients and Families

Family Amenities and Overnight Accommodations

Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is a benchmark for pediatric quality care. In line with our core value of putting patients and families first, the majority of our patient rooms provide overnight, bedside accommodations for parents to stay with their child. We encourage parents when possible to stay with their child and participate in care and care planning with the health care team.

Inpatient Acute Care
Each of our acute care rooms provides accommodations for two adults to stay with their child. 

Critical Care
Critical care units provide one sleep space for a parent, guardian or designee at the bedside.

While we do not permit siblings or other children to stay the night in the hospital, the following accommodations are available to meet your family’s short-term and long-term needs.

If emergency overnight accommodation assistance is needed, please page a social worker through the hospital operator at 692-5325.
