UChicago Medicine Comer Children's Hospital - Hyde Park is a state-of-the-art 172-bed hospital dedicated to caring for infants, children, teens and young adults.
Offering a range of services from general care to groundbreaking treatments for the most complex medical conditions, Comer Children's is home to the only Level 1 pediatric trauma center on Chicago's South Side.
The hospital has a 30-bed pediatric intensive care unit, one of the state's busiest neonatal intensive units and an array of general, specialty and sub-specialty pediatric care for children. Patients travel to Comer Children's from across the Midwest and the world for our advanced pediatric care.
We encourage patients and visitors to use our valet parking service. It’s convenient and usually less expensive than self-parking.
Located on Drexel Boulevard between 57th and 58th Streets, our short-term parking lot is situated between the Comer Children’s Emergency Department and the Center for Care and Discovery. This lot is open 24 hours a day.
Only women in labor and patients being seen in the Comer Children’s Emergency Department are allowed up to four hours of free parking with validation. Parking tickets can be validated at the Comer Children’s Emergency Department main desk and at the Family Birth Center located on the third floor of Comer Children’s Hospital. Non-validated tickets or those found to be in violation of the rules are subject to a fine, as indicated by signage in the lot.
