Street Parking Near the Hospital Campus

During the COVID-19 response, Seattle Children’s has been working hard to ensure our clinical staff can get to the hospital to care for patients. With cuts to public transit, a significant reduction in our shuttle service, and social distancing requirements — many more staff members are now driving alone. At the end of March, the City of Seattle implemented a temporary suspension of employee parking restrictions near the hospital campus and has authorized employee parking curbside on designated streets adjacent to the hospital, see map for locations. These measures will ensure essential health care workers can focus on delivering care to those that need it most, and not worry about where to park when traveling to the hospital for their shift.

We continue to encourage employees to use our onsite parking lots first before parking on the designated streets. Signs have been installed to mark where hospital employees are allowed to park. When parking permits are issued by our Transportation Department they will be managed in compliance with the City’s requirements.

Neighbors can call Seattle Children’s Security at 206-987-2030 for parking related issues or questions. For other questions, please call 206-987-8000 or email construction@seattlechildrens.org.
