Emergency Entrance cautions
Construction is going on near the BC Children’s Hospital Emergency entrance.
Please leave limited parking in the area for families needing the Emergency Department. Use these entrances instead of the one near Emergency to get picked/dropped off:

  • Oak Street Entrance #11  (by Second Cup)
  • North Entrance #17

Use our Valet Service to park for the same rate as parking your own car
Drive to entrance #36 (Near Emergency).
Leave your car with the valet and he will park it.  Regular parking fees apply.
